How to use "Caesarean delivery" in context?

Caesarean delivery is a surgical procedure in which the baby is delivered through the abdominal wall, rather than through the vagina. This can be an important choice for some women because it may increase the chance of a successful delivery. However, caesarean delivery is not always the best option for all births.

There are a number of reasons why a woman might choose a caesarean delivery. If the baby is very big or if there is a risk of another complication such as a breech delivery, a caesarean delivery may be the best option.
