Something you have to keep in mind, when looking at these stats, is what clientele these hospitals are serving. If there is a midwifery practice you wanted to see, you should probably look at their specific practice's c/s and transfer rates. Because if they work at a hospital that takes high risk women as well, they are getting lumped into those higher rates! We have a university hospital here that does a lot of the high risk women in the area, but they also have a great midwifery practice that offers the best hands off births I've seen!!

You did not fail!! I'm horrible at googling. They only reason why I had my stats is because they were dropped in my lap from a doula friend!

My hospital, Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville, AL is 38.6 % c-section rate... And only 1.8% VBAC. high risk or not that's too high.

There are also a few hospitals in my state with 50% or above section rate.... Unacceptable!
