Why do people in the U.S. need medicine to have a safe pregnancy/delivery when women in other countries can do it without any doctors or medicine at all?

I'm pregnant women in week 23 are there any earlier examination to determine if I will get normal delivery or caesarean delivery ?
Not likely: This question has been studied rather carefully.
