"Running out of time" is a common cause of C-section's. 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. Hospital Protocol also creates a sterile, busy environment which can cause a laboring woman to feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Feeling afraid can slow or stall the progression of her labor. "Failure to Progress" is one of the most common causes of surgical intervention.
