This book focuses on essential aspects of cesarean delivery: procedures, complications and recovery in a straightforward manner. The book is divided in five parts: the first part is introductory, including basic concepts such as the history and epidemiology of CS. The second part describes specific procedures, tubal ligation (with its benefits and complication) and anesthesia for CS. The third part focuses on maternal as well as neonatal short and long term complications. Recovery is covered in the forth part of the book, including early feeding, wound care, and mobilization to prevent thromboembolism. Controversial issues are covered in the last part of the book including ethics of unindicted cesarean delivery, vaginal births after cesareans delivery and the preferred timing for elective cesarean delivery.
