Answer

Answer

Cesarean delivery may be necessary for obstetric indications or a deteriorating maternal condition. The patient should be stabilized with respect to seizures, oxygenation, and hemodynamic status before the initiation of cesarean delivery. BP should be controlled and coagulopathies monitored or corrected.
