On average nationally, over 30% of first-time mothers undergo a Cesarean section.
In the past year (2012), 75,500 babies were born in Ireland. This is the highest number recorded in over 100 years. The majority of these births are spread throughout the 22 maternity hospitals in the country.
At Mount Carmel Hospital in Dublin, over 38.7% of all mothers had a Cesarean section birth last year. The lowest rate was at Sligo general hospital where 18% of all births were c-section births. Each year the stats vary at each hospital around the country.

A cesarean section, or c-section, is the delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the mother's abdomen and uterus. In certain circumstances, a c-section is scheduled in advance. In others, it's done in response to an unforeseen complication.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 33 percent of American women who gave birth in 2009 had a cesarean delivery. This is an increase of 2 percent over the previous year and the highest rate ever reported. (The c-section rate has risen nearly 60 percent since 1996.)
The World Health organisation recommends that the rate of Cesarean Section falls between 10% -15%. Cesarean Sections are a topic of controversy for many and an ongoing debate prevails on the rise of the use of this operation for childbirth.

Sometimes it's clear that a woman will need a cesarean even before she goes into labor. For example, you may require a planned c-section if:
- You've had a previous cesarean with a "classical" vertical uterine incision (this is relatively rare) or more than one previous c-section. Both of these significantly increase the risk that your uterus will rupture during a vaginal delivery.
You may need to have a c-section if problems arise that make continuing or inducing labor. These may include the following:
- Your cervix stops dilating or your baby stops moving down the birth canal, and attempts to stimulate contractions to get things moving again haven't worked.
