Abstract:   (5276 Views)

Introduction: The main reason for the choice of cesarean section delivery is to save the life or health of the mother and her baby. However, cesarean section is not without complications, either for the mother or the baby. In this study, we aimed to determine prevalence of cesarean section and its causes in Jahrom in order to plan for safe deliveries. Material and Methods: In this descriptive analytic study, we investigated the age of mother, type of delivery, delivery rank, cause of cesarean section, birth weight and gestational age. Results: The prevalence of cesarean section was 32.21%. 63.1% (652 persons) of women who had cesarean section were from urban and 36.9% (382 subjects) from rural areas. Also, 483 (47.7%) of the women who were sectioned were nullipar. The most common causes of cesarean section were previous cesarean section (34.9%), fetal distress (20.2%), dystocia (11.1%) and cephalopelvic disproportion (10.7%), respectively. 6.7% of the cesarean section deliveries were done due to the mothers' request. Conclusion: The prevalence of cesarean section in Jahrom is more than the world standard. In order to decrease the number of unnecessary cesarean cases, educating the young pregnant mothers about the disadvantages of cesarean section seems to be necessary.
