For-profit hospitals across the state are performing cesarean sections at higher rates than nonprofit hospitals, a California Watch analysis has found.

This is kind of concerning but doesn't totally surprise me. Although I am not sure that there are not other variables involved that weren't discussed in this article.

I was one who HAD to have a C-Section: After 30 hours of Labor, 8 of those on Pitocin, and this was of course after weeks of bed rest for going into labor every time I walked across the room, I had only dilated to 4 was was still "high up" . . . . I am only 5 ft tall and have a VERY small pelvis. As much as we had prepared for it, natural childbirth just wasn't an option for me
But what I wonder about, is all those women who DO NOT have health insurance ... If they NEED a C-Section, as I did, will they get it?

Thank You ~steph2007~ For My Beautiful Spring Siggy!
