This is a fascinating write up that explores why the United States Cesarean section rates are so high. It is based on the Childbirth Connections, Listening to Mothers Survey III. As a visual learner I love this flow chart. It is such a huge difference between a woman who chooses not to be induced and not to have an epidural, only 5% had a C-section as opposed to the women who had an induction and an epidural, 31% of those mother had a C-section. Yikes!
