In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for "caesarean delivery on maternal request" (CDMR) - a term that refers to delivering a baby by C-section at the request of the mother for non-medical reasons. However, some healthcare providers and organizations are hesitant to refer to this practice as a "maternal request" since it could imply that a medically unnecessary procedure is being performed. As a result, other terms have arisen to describe the same phenomenon. Some synonyms for CDMR include "elective caesarean section", "patient choice delivery", "planned caesarean delivery", and "requested caesarean birth". Regardless of the terminology, it is important for both mothers and healthcare providers to consider the risks and benefits of CDMR before making a decision.
