Deep transverse arrest has such a high rate of cesarean because it is nearly impossible for a mama to relax her pelvic floor muscles without medication (because of the urge to push and pressure on the hips), and it is highly improbable for a baby to rotate if she has no mobility from an epidural.
Wow, talk about double whammy!
Anyone else have a story about Deep Transverse Arrest they would like to share?
