Wide variation in C-Section rates: to those of us in the natural birth world this is NO surprise.
Here’s my suggestion: rather than try to “route out” the doctors who are doing too many C-Sections, let’s study the doctors with the ten percent rate of C-Sections and find out what they are doing differently. What are they doing RIGHT that could be copied by other doctors? Just slapping the hands of doctors doesn’t help. We need to point them in the right direction. Let’s focus on the best practices, not the worst.
