WHAT:
An independent panel will weigh the available scientific evidence regarding the risks and benefits of Caesarean delivery on maternal request (also referred to as elective Caesarean delivery) on March 27 - 29. The panel will issue a statement of its findings on the final day and will hold a press conference at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29.

Conference speakers' presentations, open discussions, and the panel's statement will focus on these questions:

  • 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?'"/>
