This is a descriptive cross-sectional study conducted in Alshikh Mohamed Ali Fadul hospital in Omdurman City-Sudan during January 2017 – January 2018. The main aim was to identify the association of body adipose tissue with an incidence caesarean section in pregnant women. In antenatal clinic as per protocol 150 pregnant women in their third trimester after taking a detailed obstetrical history and clinical examination. After completion of the one year data regarding the detailed obstetrical and surgical history were recorded in a questionnaire and analyzed using descriptive frequency, crosstab and linear regression 94 (62.67%) women were diagnosed as cases of cesarean section. The overall incidence of cesarean section was found to be 79 (53.0%) body adipose tissue and 98 (65%) foot size. It was evident from the study that body mass index takes prize of risk factors of caesarean section as follows linear regression equations:

Prize = 1.961+ (-0.117-) Body Adipose Tissue (P =0. 003<0.05).
Y = (-1.141-) + (-0.125-) Body Adipose Tissue + (0.084) Foot Size(P =0. 001& 0.018<0.05).

Keywords: Obesity, Body mass index, Adipose tissue, risk factors of cesarean section, labour management.
