Medical Monday: Cesarean Section Procedures

If you are pregnant or want to be, this is a Medical Monday conversation for you.  Why has there been an increase in the number of cesarean section procedures in the delivery room?  In a new report, the CDC says every three out of five women who have a given birth by C-section have not had one before.
This increase has been happening over the past 25 years.
