"Failure to Progress" is one of the most common reasons for C-section. Stalled labor during either dilation or pushing stage, labor has “gone on too long”. Hospital protocol sometimes dictates that a woman can only labor for a certain number of hours before she needs a C-section even if the labor is progressing smoothly. These protocols and time pressures can cause a laboring woman to feel unsafe or uncomfortable which can slow or stall the progression of her labor.
