·  The position of the baby is not convenient- breech position

·  Fetal distress- the heartbeat of the baby is falling or presence of meconium is detected

·  The mother is no longer in a situation to bear the stress of vaginal delivery

·  Infectious vaginal disease which can be transferred to the baby during delivery is detected
