(China Daily) A pregnant woman's relatives and a hospital in Yulin, Shaanxi province, are blaming each other for rejecting the woman's request to have a C-section, which allegedly led to her jumping to her death from the fifth floor of the hospital.

The 26-year-old woman, Ma Rongrong, who was a week away from delivery, was admitted to the First Hospital of Yulin on Wednesday to give birth, the hospital said in a statement dated on Sunday.

Medical checks showed the baby's head was bigger than normal, suggesting higher risks during natural birth, the statement said.

Ma's doctor advised her and her family to give Ma a C-section, but her family refused and signed a document at the hospital confirming that Ma would deliver naturally, the statement said.

She was transferred to the delivery room on Thursday morning but later left the room several times because of pain. She asked her husband to allow a C-section. Her doctor and nurses also advised her husband to allow the surgery, but all requests were rejected, the statement said.
Ma became emotional and lost control due to pain, and jumped out of the building later that day and died, the statement said.

It is a tragedy that could have been prevented, and the question is why are people are obessed with natural birth? Should the pregnant woman have the right to choose to give birth by natural birth or c-section?

The pregnant woman knelt before her relatives and begged for c-section.

"Obsessions with naturalbirth"? I don't understand the question. Why are Chinese women obsessed about planning the birth of their child? Many ask for a C-section so that the child is born on an auspicious day. Hospitals and obstetricians even promote this insane trend.
