C-Section Rates by Hospital for Multiple States
Many women would like to have better access to c-section rate information for a given hospital or other facility, because they vary widely and can be helpful in getting an idea of how a facility manages birth. C-section rates in general can be difficult to find, with national resources focusing on state-by-state data, many state resources focusing on county data, and facility-level data spread around among numerous websites. Often, the data is too old to be useful in making decisions. However, I was able to find relatively recent by-facility rates for several states (including NY, NJ, CA, FL, and others), and have listed the resources in a new post at Our Bodies Ourselves.
