A Chinese woman, 26, had gone to a hospital with unbearable labour pains. For hours, she begged for a Caesarean section to ease her agony. After multiple requests were refused, she jumped five floors from a hospital window to her death.
This incident led to a vigorous debate across China as to why was she refused a C section.
Many demanded repealing of various laws and to fix the responsibility for this case.
One of the reason given was that "The hospital wants to limit C-sections at their place” , hence they keep on denying her the Caesarean. Other reason given was that the husband refused because he has the traditional belief of Normal delivery.
This issue has it’s reflection here in India too, where time and again the proportion of higher C section delivery has been blamed on the doctors and hospitals, by the government and other bodies.
Even to the extent that a proposal was put to fine the hospital if someone exceeds the C section delivery by 25%.
These restrictions carry such risks, because there can never be a fixed number that only these many women will need caesarean.
But who is to be blamed for rise in C sections?
Comfort, reduced pain bearing capacity, women nowadays even prefer painless normal delivery.
Along with this, the Horoscope factor is playing a big role nowadays to fix the exact timing.
Doctor’s role if suspected can be easily tackled by making it mandatory to put in more detail the reason for C section.
But if a patient ask for Caesarean, if a women is not mentally strong enough to handle delivery even if everything else is normal, should she be refused this right? Can we force someone to undergo what this Chinese woman went through?
It is wider debate, only to be considered after having the best opinion from the doctors and suggestions from others.
Till that time, the condition( both physical and mental) of that women and child should be the only guiding criteria.
