OB Guideline 26: Cesarean Delivery on Maternal Request

Related to: Clinical Guidelines, Diagnosis, Cures Act: Opening Notes, Informed Consent, Medication, Nursing, Obstetrics

Cesarean delivery on maternal request is defined as a primary cesarean performed at patient request without medical indication. Each physician may decide to support the patient request or not on a case-by-case basis. Primary cesarean delivery on maternal request without medical indication should not be scheduled before seven days prior to the EDD (see Guideline 14).  If a physician agrees to perform a primary cesarean delivery upon patient request, then detailed written informed consent should be obtained. A sample consent form for this procedure is available (see Appendix H).
