The consent is required so that patient can accept or reject any examination or treatment. It also helps in building the relationship between patient and physician. This study was aimed at studying the quality and quantity of informed consent practices for cesarean section in a tertiary health centre. The present study is a descriptive cross- sectional study carried out in women who underwent emergency or elective cesarean section during study period. The accuracy of the informed consent was calculated on the basis of response to these statements i.e. test or procedure name, risks and benefits of procedure etc. We found that 87% of the women were aware about the necessity to do C-section delivery. We emphasizes on the need for appropriate counseling of patients in relation to the complications of cesarean section.
