Caesarean Risk

If Caesarean delivery "more than triples a woman's risk of dying in childbirth compared to a vaginal birth," then why do most mothers still prefer having it?

There are many reasons.

For some Chinese, they just want thier baby born on some auspicious day.

Some Chinese don't like their babies born during the seventh lunar month, which coincides with the month of the hungry ghosts!

Talk about superstitions!
