Knowledge of ceserea: Most common operation performed in the US. In the past few years the incidence of Cesarean has risen significantly in the US with major cities having the historic highest rates. Cesareans are not free of complications either. If you are planning a large family, you will have higher incidence of abnormal placentation.
