Can I have an elective C-section?

Iris does carry out elective C-sections for patients who have been informed about the potential consequences of this decision. If you think you might want to have a C-section, you should let her know.

Many women want to go down this path because they think they will feel more in control, or they are fearful of the unknown experience of childbirth. C-sections can make it more difficult for you to give birth naturally in subsequent pregnancies. Iris will always have a detailed discussion with you about the pros and cons, answer your questions, and try to ease any worries. In the end, your final decision will be respected.
