Back Pain = Cesarean Sections

Interesting.  I would not have thought that a woman's experience of back pain in labor is a significant contributor to the high rate of c-sections.  Although of course epidurals increase the likelihood of a c-section, so pain that causes a woman to request/accept an epidural would account for some of that... Well.  We shall see.
