Abstract

BACKGROUND: The rates of Cesarean section C-section have garnered growing attention as a result of their

influence on the health outcomes of both mothers and newborns. The Robson 10 Group Classification System

provides a structured framework for the classification and comparison of cesarean section rates, taking into

account obstetric features and delivery outcomes. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to examine the

rates of cesarean section C-section in relation to the Robson 10 Group Classification System. METHODS: A

varied group of pregnant persons was used to gather data pertaining to several characteristics including parity,

fetal presentation, and gestational period, commencement of labor, prior cesarean sections, Apgar scores, newborn

weight, and mother age. The use of the Robson 10 Group Classification System included the categorization of

deliveries into various groups, taking into account obstetric risk factors and delivery outcomes. The distribution

of these factors was shown using descriptive statistics.RESULTS: The study disclosed notable percentage of

deliveries that fell within distinct Robson Group groupings. The study revealed significant observations, such as

a substantial percentage of nulliparous women opting for induced labor or pre-labor C-sections 12.7%, as well as

a predominance of singleton pregnancies 87.3%. A total of 79.2% of newborns had Apgar scores over 7. The

majority of pregnancies, accounting for 74.1% of cases, typically spanned a duration of 37 to 40 weeks.

Additionally, it was observed that cesarean section rates prior to the onset of labor were recorded at

50%.CONCLUSION: The examination of maternal and obstetric variables in relation to the rates of cesarean

section C-section offers significant insights into the outcomes of childbirth. This study highlights the need of

individualized obstetric treatment in order to maximize health outcomes for both mothers and newborns.
