Government rations cesareans

Posted Jun 13 2009 12:27am

There are some benefits of nationalized health care.  The government can have more of an impact on health outcomes.  But I only see it benefiting countries where they want to save money!   I imagine in America the ACOG would want more cesareans, so their Obstetricians could make more money.

I was excited to see this article from Great Britain.  Cesareans Rationed:  Women denied procedure on safety grounds. 

Now the primary care trust in Manchester has said that c-sections should be put on the same lists for rationing by local hospitals as infertility treatment, cosmetic surgery and acupuncture.

They talk about how elective cesareans are less safe then vaginal births (except in certain instances)  I think this is great that they are acknowleding this!
