In this global service, the provider provides all of the antepartum care, admission to the hospital for delivery, intensive management of labor followed by delivery of the fetus and placenta via an abdominal incision, and inpatient and outpatient postpartum care. The patient’s attempt at a vaginal delivery after a previous cesarean delivery fails, resulting in a repeat cesarean. Typical global services begin at eight to ten weeks gestation, with a full–term cesarean delivery at thirty–nine to forty weeks gestation, and routine outpatient postpartum care of one or more visits up to six weeks following delivery.
