Many expectant mothers find convenience in scheduling their deliveries.
But it may not be worth the risk.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is warning against C-Sections performed for non-medical reasons such as convenience or fear of pain.
Experts say the risks of a cesarean section include: increased hospital stay and recovery time, increased infection rates and greater risk of bladder and bowel injuries.
Also the need for a hysterectomy increases with each C-Section.
More than one million C-Sections are performed each year in the U-S.
