Earlier this week, we posted a link to a story about the new study that found a new 34% high for the cesarean rate in America. The full report has been published and is available for review here. The report includes a ranking of the best hospitals in the nation for both maternity care and gynecologic surgery. There is a good discussion on cesareans–including discussion on the rising trend as well as factors leading to the rise–although, as mentioned, the report contains the dubious claim that cesareans are indicated when a woman has had a prior cesarean delivery. The report also includes data on the percentage of cesarean v. vaginal deliveries by state from 2007-2009, along with a comparison of the risks of a cesarean delivery v. a vaginal one. Check out the full report and leave your comments on it below.
