What is the csection rate where you live?

Do you know your care provider's csection rate?

I'm really not sure about my Midwife or the state of Georgia entirely, but I'm pleased for the most part at the hospital's rate. I believe North Fulton is at a somewhat-comfortable (compared to most hospitals in my local area) 10.9%. The closest hospital to me has a rate of 36%

The hospital rate is through the roof high... over 40%! There's some obvious factors that contribute to that, though. VBACs are banned, so the repeat section rate drives that up. A lot of doctors are very induction happy here, and some just jump to a section if the baby seems to be too big or silly stuff like that. They just don't do trial labors unless you stand your ground.

Not sure what my doctor's rate is, but she doesn't induce unless it's medically needed and she encourages a lot of NCB friendly practices in her patients. All of my friends who have had NCBs have had it with her.

Since all the hospitals within a 2 hour radius have about the same section rates, and there are no midwives here, my doctor seems like my best bet at not having a section. We'll be moving in the next few years, so hopefully for our next child, the c-section rates at the hospital I deliver at will be better.

My provider was a homebirth midwife and I'm not sure what her transfr rate is. California as a whole has a cs rate of 33% and my local hospital is at 28%. I think these stats are from 2009 so it may be a bit different now. Apparently LA has an absolutely horrible section rate. A lot of hospitals on the list were well over 40% and some even above 50%!

My area is around 33% whereas the transfer rate for my birth center is lower than that number so the csection rate automatically is lower. I know they told me a number at one time during my appts but I cannot remember. It's drastically lower than 33% though. They told me only 3% of cestions are actual true emergencies. I do remember that, that's why they allow us to eat during labor.
