This study considered the predictive factors to normal and caesarean section delivery by pregnant women. Data was collected on normal and abnormal delivery (C-section) from the statistical medical unit of three different hospitals in the south-east of Nigeria. The sample population is 200, and about three factors were considered. Fisher’s linear discriminant analysis was the statistical tool used for the analysis. One most significant factor was identified as that which influence or determine the type of delivery to expect by women about to deliver.
