More Women Delivering Babies by Caesarean Section

Sixteen months later, though, Hulse has healed to the point that she and her husband are trying to have another baby. But this time she's hoping to avoid another C-section by delivering at home, unless complications make a hospital delivery necessary.

Leibold, too, would like to give labor and delivery a try.

"I'm glad that (C-sections are) an option in today's world. Obviously compared to old ages, if the child was breech and the mother tried to go through labor, complications for child and mother were fatal a lot of the time," she said.

But "if I don't have to do that again, I don't want to do that again."
