Abstract : Predicting the type of delivery; with the least-cost means, for a pregnant woman, is veryvaluable, when there are no other facilities to help in predicting what type we are going to choose.Anthropometric measures are very easy to perform and are cost effective in such circumstances, and mayhelp in lowering the rates of maternal and perinatal mortalities and morbidities, by making the right decisionearlier, especially in the developing regions of the world, where maternal and perinatal deaths constitute amajor problem in health facilities (Benjamin et al., 2011) (Mahmood, Campbell, Wilson, 1988) [1,2]Caesarean section (CS) is a surgical procedure to deliver one or more babies through incisions made in theabdomen (laparotomy) and the uterus (hysterectomy) of the mother. There are many indications to proceedwith CS, such as previous CS, cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD), dystocia, malpresentation, fetal andmaternal diseases and others, but in general, when the vaginal delivery fails, or when the risks during havinga vaginal delivery exceeds the risks of a CS, a CS is recommended (Baker, Kenny, 2011)3 CPD is the resultof an anatomical disproportion between the head of the fetus and the mother’s pelvis. It may be due to smallpelvis of the mother, large head of the baby (although it’s rare that a fetal anomaly contributes to CPD) orcombination of both (Baker, Kenny, 2011) [3]
