All childbirth is a natural event! Be glad we have C sections as an option today. Just 100 years ago, they were only done to save the baby when the Mother wasn't expected to make it, because back then, they didn't believe in sewing up the uterus due to risk of infection, and so women typically bled to death or died of infection! Modern suture material made todays C sections possible. In medieval times, horrible instruments were used to crush the babies head when they got stuck in the pelvis to save the mother rather than losing both Mother and baby!

some of them had to due to complications or simply having a baby to large to pass through their birth canal which is determined by the circumfrance of the babies head or a large birth weight can also determine a c-section particularly in shorter women. for example Joanne Woodward once admitted she was born via c-section in 1930 because she was breech and nearly 11lbs coming out of a woman who was 5ft tall while her younget grandson was a planned c-section because her daughter had had complications during pregnancy including pre-term labor and toximia plus the baby was 11.6lbs at birth not that her daughter Lissy is short 5ft 8in
