Obstetrical attitudes and practices before and after the Canadian consensus conference statement on Cesarean birth.
This paper describes one aspect of a research program aimed at reducing the incidence of cesarean section in Ontario for women with a previous cesarean section or a breech presentation.
Using data from multiple sources-surveys of obstetricians, and hospital administrators, and hospital record statistics, the authors attempt to assess the response of obstetricians to pressure to change their practice.
This pressure comes principally from the Canadian Consensus Conference Statement on Cesarean Birth, released in June 1986 and subsequently endorsed by a number of professional organizations.
The Statement provides clear guidelines for the management of labour in women with previous cesarean section or a breech presentation.
