Abstract: Aim: To study the effect of decision to delivery interval in deciding maternal and fetal outcome in emergency caesarean section. Introduction: Dating of pregnancy is a very important concept in obstetrics. Many decisions in obstetrics are taken based on the length of the pregnancy, nothing but the time spent by the fetus in utero. Material & methods: This study was carried out at a tertiary care urban hospital in Western India. Women who underwent emergency singleton caesarean delivery at term were included. The study was conducted over 18 months from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology from 1st December to 30th May 2019. Results: Most of the deliveries took place within 45 minutes of the decision, and only 18 of them took more than one hour. Most deliveries took between 31-45 minutes.
