  • What is the trend and incidence of Caesarean delivery over time in the United States and other countries?
  • What are the short-term (under one year) and long-term benefits and harms to mother and baby associated with Caesarean by request versus attempted vaginal delivery?
  • What factors influence benefits and harms?
  • What future research directions need to be considered to get evidence for making appropriate decisions regarding Caesarean on request or attempted vaginal delivery?'"/>
