Cesarean sections took from about two to seven minutes longer, from incision to delivery, for obese women, compared with those for women who were not obese, according to a study in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The study from the Washington University School of Medicine found that babies born to women with a BMI greater than 40 tended to have more complications, and author Dr. Shayna Conner said that adding seven minutes to delivery times could lead to problems in emergency procedures.
