OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of Cesarean section in women with increased body mass index.
METHODS: It was a cross sectional study, conducted at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur in a six months period from May to November 2012. Data was collected on a preformed questionnaire and analysed with the help of SPSS software.
RESULTS: We included 132 cases, majority of the patients i.e. 31.06% (n=41) were between 25-30 years of age, mean and SD was calculated as 27.89+5.72 years. Mean of duration of pregnancy was 39.67+4.89 weeks. Mean of BMI of the subjects was calculated as 29.45+4.21 kg/m2, while the frequency of Cesarean section was recorded in 33 (25%).
CONCLUSIONS: The results of the study reveal that the frequency of cesarean section is considerable among increased BMI pregnant women and which needs to reduce the frequency of obesity whether it is pre-pregnancy or after pregnancy.
