The conference will also be webcast live at http://videocast.nih.gov/.

WHY:
The potential benefits of elective Caesarean delivery as compared to vaginal delivery are not yet fully understood. Both approaches carry risks and benefits, and any decision to deliver by Caesarean delivery when vaginal delivery is also available should be informed by the best possible information regarding potential health outcomes, good and bad, for both mother and baby. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and OMAR have planned the upcoming conference to stimulate a critical review of the available evidence and to identify directions for future research.
