Abstract


The article explored the problem of high frequency of caesarean sections and its impact on human evolution. Both medical and moral causes of this global phenomenon were discussed. Short-term and long-term negative consequences, which people born by caesarean section may face. The article concluded that, an unreasonable increase in the level of operative delivery results in a perinatal trauma, which is a natural consequence of the caesarean section, and tends to become an anthropological sign of the future generation. To improve this dangerous situation, Christian worldview aiming to preserve and strengthen family values as the basis for the nation’s reproduction should be reconstructed.

Key words: cesarean section, human evolution, perinatal trauma, anthropology.
