EBCOG POSITION STATEMENT ON CAESAREAN SECTION IN EUROPE
Caesarean section is an important obstetric intervention but has got long term implications for maternal and newborn’s health, says Tahir Mahmood, Past President of EBCOG. There has been incremental rise in the rate of caesarean section all over Europe and in some countries the incidence of section is approaching 50%. EBCOG calls for collection of Caesareans Section data across European countries by using Robson criteria for bench marking and to develop strategies to reduce this epidemic of rising caesarean sections.
This issue will be explored further at the forthcoming EBCOG Congress in Paris in March 2018 - click here
