Mode of delivery

The mode of delivery will be your choice after understanding the risks and benefits of both vaginal and cesarean delivery.

Although vaginal delivery is often referred to as natural delivery, it does carry risks for both you and your baby. If not managed well, vaginal birth can lead to serious complications.

Each patient is unique. Statistics show that among women who choose vaginal birth, approximately one-third will have an uncomplicated delivery, one-third will need instrumental assistance, and one-third will require a cesarean section.

Risks Associated with Natural Birth

Fetal Hypoxia: If the placental reserve is insufficient during uterine contractions, reduced oxygenated blood flow to the baby can lead to serious complications, such as cerebral palsy. Continuous monitoring during labor is essential if concerns arise, and delivery may be facilitated with instrumental assistance or emergency cesarean if necessary. Delayed delivery decisions can result in serious, long-term complications for the baby.

Shoulder Dystocia: This serious delivery complication is more common in pregnancies affected by gestational diabetes or with larger babies, but it can also occur with normal-sized babies and in women without gestational diabetes.

The risks associated with elective caesarean

Recovery: Generally, recovery from an uncomplicated cesarean is quick, with many patients becoming mobile the next day and typically discharged from the hospital after one or two days.

Damage to Surrounding Organs: While rare, there is a risk of damage to surrounding organs such as the bladder, bowel, ureters, and blood vessels. This risk is higher if there have been previous abdominal surgeries or cesareans. If damage occurs, it should be repaired by the relevant surgical specialty.

Adherent Placenta: The risk of an adherent placenta increases with previous uterine surgeries, including cesarean deliveries. This condition can often be diagnosed antenatally, and if diagnosed, the cesarean should be performed by a senior obstetrician due to the risk of increased bleeding, which may rarely necessitate a hysterectomy.

Obstetrics is a wonderful specialty and taking part with delivery of your baby is priceless for your private obstetrician. However, obstetrics pregnancy is well known as high-risk specialty, some due to the above risks and complications. If the decisions are not made timely, the results can be devastating for the couple and the baby. Having one to one care with a senior obstetrician significantly improves the outcome and helps decisions to be made timely to reduce the risks of complications happening.

Also having one to one care during antenatal period will allow you and your obstetrician to build up a special relationship which will definitely help you to be more confident and well-informed during pregnancy and delivery of your baby.

High medical indemnity fees associated with private obstetrics practice in the UK makes it a costly service therefore unfortunately it is not available to all women.
