"Delivery mode for high-risk pregnancies: Effects on fertility, health and labor market outcomes"
I use a sharp increase in planned cesarean sections (CS) among breech presentation pregnancies at term, and study the short and long term effects on fertility, health and labor market outcomes in Sweden. The change in delivery mode followed new evidence of preferred mode of delivery from, inter alia, a large scale and international randomized controlled trial published in 2000. This information shock, to the medical society, is used as exogenous variation in CS. In particular, the effects on child and maternal health, subsequent fertility outcomes and labor market responses from CS are documented in this study. The overall results suggest that the rise in planned CS improved child health while, for first time mothers, reduced future fertility and increased income from gainful earnings.
