That is great. I find it interesting though. The rate for the hospital that I had my section at is 38%. The doctor that gave me my section has almost 40%. The rate for the hospital I am going to deliver at has 28%. And the doctor I am going to have is 28% as well. So I am feeling a lot better right about now!

Ugh there is a doctor on there with a 78% c-section rate. Disgusting.

Here's a site I found about hospitals in California: http://www.calhospitalcompare.org/?v=2

Unfortunately it doesn't have data for many hospitals (I'm guessing the ones with very high CS rates) but the rate at the main hospital in my city is 15% Smile

I wonder if he deals with a lot of high risk/multiple moms? That is incredibly high.
