Pelvic infection : Infections following a c-section is an infrequent but known complication. It is one of the reasons why a vaginal delivery is considered to be the safest method of delivery as long as all goes well. Prophylactic antibiotics are always given whenever a c- section is performed. Even still, sometimes infections can occur.
