Potential Consequences of a Delayed C-Section
Depending on the nature of a birthing complication, a fetus may be at risk
of losing oxygen, suffering brain damage, or other problems. In many cases,
30 minutes is the longest a child can go without surgical intervention.
Even a short delay can aggravate these issues and result in disabilities
that last a lifetime.
Common causes for an emergency C-Section include:
- Cord prolapse
- Fetal distress
- Uterine rupture
