Which Countries Conduct The Most Caesarean Sections?

Many are conducted when not medically required with the procedure carrying a certain level of risk. The increasing c-section rate is primarily due to a higher of number of births among older women, multiple births through assisted reproduction, technological advances, and due to personal preference. Among OECD nations, Turkey has the highest c-section rate at 50.4 per 100 live births.
