dc.description.abstractThe rising caesarean section (CS) rates have been, in part, attributed to women's requests. Several individual studies and literature reviews have attempted to determine the degree of influence of women's requests on overall CS rates, and the common reasons behind these requests, from women's, midwives' and obstetricians' viewpoints. Despite many similarities in their findings, there is both a lack of clarity and disparity on the degree of influence women's requests actually has on the decision to perform a CS. This paper presents a critique of a key finding from a recently published systematic review of clinicians' (midwives' and obstetricians') views of factors that influenced their decision to perform a CS, which identified their belief in 'women's request' as a key factor. This finding is contrasted with findings from three other published reviews, which concluded that women's request contributed minimally to the overall rising rates of CS indicating a disparity in evidence around influence and contribution of women's request. Some of the possible reasons for this disparity can be explained by differences in views of women and clinicians, women's decision being guided by clinicians' beliefs of what is 'safe' and unsafe', and women's concerns being interpreted as their request and preferences to birth by CS. An insight into the possible reasons for the disparity in findings can help explain whether maternal request has any influence on the rising rates of CSs. Keywords:en
