In this global service, the provider admits the patient to the hospital for delivery and provides intensive management of labor with 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 with admission for a full–term cesarean delivery at thirty–nine to forty weeks gestation and include routine inpatient care and outpatient postpartum care of one or more visits up to six weeks following delivery.
