OB/GYNs Tell How to Reduce C-Section Risk

Drs. Russell Turk and Karen Zino of Riverside OB/GYN will offer a free pregnancy and childbirth lecture at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16 at the Greenwich YWCA.

 The lecture will address why the nation’s Cesarean section rate has reached an all-time high and why many doctors discourage women from having a vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC). In Connecticut, 34.6% of all births are by C-section, the seventh highest rate in the country.

 Drs. Turk and Zino will discuss what patients can do to help avoid a C-section and/or safely undergo VBAC and achieve a low intervention birth. The pitfalls of labor induction, scheduled C-sections and the risks and benefits of VBACs and natural childbirth will also be discussed.

The lecture will take place at the Greenwich YWCA, 259 East Putnam Ave, Greenwich. RSVP to [email protected] or call 203.637.3337. Riverside Obstetrics & Gynecology is a full-service medical practice incorporating traditional and holistic approaches to women's health. For more information visit
