Brazilian women have one of the highest C/S rates in the world but guess what - the SF Bay Area is not far behind it!! That is scary given the Maternal Mortality Rate associated with C/S's and the infant morbidity rate too. Check this out as it makes quite intersting reading.....

Hi all you lovers of Midwives! Maria and I at Bay Area Maternity (BAM) would like to inform you that our Cesarean Section rate for 2014 was 7% - have you ever heard of anything so crazy? We delivered 314 women and only 7% had to be delivered by C/S and most of those were because the cervix just stopped dilating. Anyway we love our work and are so grateful to the community of Doulas who work with us and the great team of nurses at Los Gatos El Camino Hospital. More stats to come....
