Perinatal Transmission of Hepatitis C Virus
This answer is incorrect. Prospective cohort studies comparing Cesarean section with vaginal delivery as a contributing factor for mother-to-child HCV transmission have shown contradictory results. Because there is no clear-cut benefit of performing elective Cesarean section in this setting, in the United States, elective Cesarean section is not recommended for prevention of vertical HCV transmission.
