BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth is calling for submissions to our Collection on Safety and complications of cesarean birth in resource-limited settings.
Although overuse of cesarean birth is a serious global health concern, its underuse can endanger the health of mothers and babies, as access to safe surgical birth is crucial for favorable maternal and neonatal outcomes. Despite the need for the option of cesarean birth, it is not always safe or available in resource-limited settings, where skilled providers, equipment, and facilities may be limited.
