Unnecessary caesarean sections

Who reports that caesarean sections are used in 37 percent of deliveries in Bangladesh, whereas the reasonable rate should be about 10 percent. It is a matter of great concern as a growing number of private clinics in the country, whose main intention is to earn money rather than providing quality healthcare to the patients, go for unnecessary caesarean sections.

In rural areas, some hoaxes are also at play. Many believe that babies born through C-sections become more brilliant than those born through normal deliveries. In this context, Birganj upazila Health Complex truly set an example by making people aware of the harmful effects of unnecessary caesarean sections. They deserve kudos.
