Objectives: The study objectives are to find out factors associated with caesarean section and to find out the association between the problems associated with caesarean section with selected demographic variables. Methodology: Non experimental-Descriptive design. The study was conducted at K.T.G General Hospital, Bangalore. To achieve the objectives of the study, a non-probability (purposive) sample of 60 mothers who undergone caesarean section were selected for the study.
