Someone just shared this link with me-- and thought I'd pass it on.
Basically, this site permits you to look up the hospital you plan to deliver at and learn about their c-section rates. It is eye-opening.
If you are interested in avoiding a surgical birth, there are steps you can take to minimize your chances of having a section, and this data is helpful in decision making. Happy looking!
Some hospitals have rates as high at 58%+ and some as low at 14% (the World Health Organization recommends rates between 5-10%, where the best outcomes for moms and babies are found, otherwise the sections are "extras" and do more harm than good.)
