Sometimes, medical interventions may be necessary during labor and delivery. An intervention may happen when a new course of action is necessary to reduce risks, and your healthcare provider or care team must step in to ensure the safety of you and your baby during the birthing process.
Interventions may include:
- An induction of labor
- An augmentation of labor
- An assisted birth
- An episiotomy
- A C-section
Some common reasons for a medical intervention during labor and delivery include:
- Health conditions that put you at a higher risk of complications during labor
- Pregnancy complications during your pregnancy or labor
- Slow labor progress
- Complicated positioning of the baby that makes a vaginal delivery more difficult
- Signs of distress in the baby
