Robson classification is a particularly useful tool for all factors involved in obstetrics. In our study, 840 cesarean births from 2018 were classified according to Robson Classification. Thus, the patients analyzed in the present study have in common an almost obvious trait: the indication for caesarean is, in mostly analyzed cases, not very clear. In fact, much of the cesareans studied are nothing but cesarean performed at the request of the patient. We believe that the urgent implementation of Robson Classification in maternity hospitals in Romania is not only necessary, but also extremely urgent, being a practical tool in determining the causes of certain obstetrical practices and customs.
