Thanks for sharing that. I have always been one who believed that the c-section rate was far too high in the US, and I still believe that many doctors rush to do one, but there were a lot of things in that article that I had never considered before.
The data on obesity was the fascinating part to me, that adjusting for American rates of obesity the rate of c-sections comes down to match other developed nations. Really fascinating. I had never associated c-sections with obesity in my head, so hearing that you're more likely to have one if you're overweight or obese was news to me.
