Avoiding the first c-section: 5 essential questions

In recognition of International Cesarean Awareness Month, sponsored by the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN), I wanted to discuss a problem I feel contributes significantly to the high rate of primary c-sections in the United States.  It is critical that we look at what can be done to decrease the primary c-section rate (the first cesarean for a woman), because once the first c-section is done, it becomes increasingly difficult for many women to find support for a subsequent vaginal birth.
