Risks Associated with C section include blood clots, bleeding, and anaesthetic reactions. It can also have one of the following effects like infection, surgical trauma to the bladder or intestine, Amniotic embolism in which amniotic fluid or fetal material enters the mother's bloodstream, Inflammation of the uterus and bleeding.

Traditional Caesarean section is a classic caesarean section (C-section) involves a long vertical incision along the midline of the abdomen. After the skin incision, the uterus is also made longitudinally to give birth to the baby. Due to the size of the incision, this C-section provides large space for birth. The Lower Uterine Segment Caesarean Section (LUCS) is type of incision is made just above the pubic hairline, just above the bladder. It is a horizontal incision in the uterus and under the skin. This is one of the most common C-section delivery methods used today. The risk of postoperative bleeding and other complications such as hernia is minimized, and surgical wounds heal more easily than wounds left by traditional incisions. Caesarean section hysterectomy removes the uterus in the same procedure as delivery. It is needed after the childbirth if there is heavy bleeding from the placenta or if the placenta cannot be separated from the uterine wall.
