C-Section Rates by Hospital for Multiple States

November 26, 2007

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.

    This is an excellent suggestion because in order to manage your baby’s birth you need to know you will receive cooperation from the facility you’re in. But it also starts with your doctor. Ask lots of questions and understand his history as well. If you don’t get the answers you like, getting a second opinion is always an option.

    Etwas OT, aber was ich mich immer schon gefragt habe, warum T-Shirt Druck so teuer ist? Ich meine, die ganzen T-Shirt Drucker wollen knapp 20 fr ein normales T Shirt mit meinem eigenen Motiv haben. Ich suche jetzt aktuell fr meine Band einen Anbieter, der mir Kleinserien druckt (so 10-20 stk). Kennt da jemand einen preiswerten Anbieter?

    This is awful. This causes so many health problems for the women.
