Reason for C/S ??: Of the many reasons for a c section, one of the most important is to get a baby that has a chance out of a situation that is killing them. I have seen babies that had 3 knots form on their umbilicord that began to cut off babies nutrients & oxygen, baby quit growing as the only sign, with a c/s/ good specialty support & luck that kid is healthy today.Refusal may kill your kid, think about it.
