Caesarean Section is the commonest obstetric operative procedure Worldwide. When used appropriately Cesarean Section can improve infant and/or maternal outcomes. this study intended to assess the magnitude and factors associated with Caesarean Section in Lemlem Karl Hospital. The aim of this study was to asses theMagnitude of Caesarean Section and associated factors in Lemlem Karl General Hospital, Northern Ethiopia, 2016.A cross-sectional study design was conducted inLemlem Karl Hospital in Northern Ethiopia from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016. The collected data was checked for its completeness; entered, edited, cleaned and analyzed using SPSS version 20. Crosstabs, 95%CI and P-value < 0.05 were used to examine the association between dependent and independent variables using logistic regression. We found that the magnitude of Cesarean Section was 28.8%. Parthographstatus(AOR;0.112,95%CI(0.041,0.307)) and ANC follow up(AOR;0.442,95%CI(0.250,0.849)) were found to have association with cesarean delivery. In this research, the magnitude of the Cesarean Section was high. It is possible to decrease the Caesarean Sectionby increasing the antenatal care coverage and universal use of partograph for all labors.
