From The New York Times: A new study shows that doctors may be overprescribing opioid pain medication to women who have had cesarean sections.
Not to mention doctors doing a RIDICULOUS number of Caesarian sections in the first place – over 30% of babies in the USA are delivered by Caesarian. WHO recommendations say no more than 15%, which I think is very high. Midwifes often sport figures like 2-5%. US Obstetrics is almost as irrational as US psychiatry.
