I saw an online petition yesterday in which a lady explained how she was persuaded to have a caesarian delivery by a hospital who presented it as more ‘scientific, modern and risk-free.’
How to defang India’s predatory doctors

Many of the points you raise are similar to problems faced in Pakistan’s healthcare system. Especially this. Unnecessary Cesarian sections are on the rise, for no other reason than the doctor wants to get it all over with, and waiting for the birth to happen naturally takes too long. So the mother is induced for no reason.

Good write-up. I’m sure many from different countries but with similar social and economic issues will relate.

Like what you read? Give Fatima Taqvi a round of applause.
