Caesarean section on request of the mother turned out lately to be very actual in obstetrical discussions. To come to rational decisions the scientific results of several medical disciplines should be taken into consideration. There is no scientific evidence for benefits of such elective c-section in paediatrics and psychosocial medicine. The obstetricians view shows both benefits and disadvantages, the later overweighing the first. In the light of these data, elective caesarean without other indication but the mothers request does not show to be an acceptable routine procedure.
