Do you know your hospital’s Cesarean rate?

15Mar10

If you are having a baby in a Florida hospital, bookmark this website:  http://www.floridahealthfinder.gov/

When you get to the site, in the search window, type “Cesarean”.

The first result is a spreadsheet of all Florida hospitals and their Cesarean birth rates.  This is excellent information to know!  However, it lumps all Cesarean births together.  These numbers include primary and repeat Cesarean births.

This link contains information up through 2004, but it separates out primary cesareans (first timers), repeat cesareans, and includes numbers of VBACs at each hospital!
For other states, start your search here.  If your state isn’t listed, google it!
