Hospital C-Section Rates

Have you seen this web site Cesareanrates.com ?
It actually is a pretty interesting site to visit if you are planning on having a baby any time soon.
You can log on, pick your state, then find your local hospital.
It gives you their c-section rates plus whether they allow VBAC's (vaginal births after a c-section).
You do have to keep in mind that some hospitals do more high risk deliveries than others which may sway some of the results.
Yet, I found it interesting looking through and seeing what the rates are at different facilities in my area.

That is very interesting! I had two under emergency situations (well the first was scary and persuaded my Dr that they wouldn't induce me...long story). Thanks for the resource!
