Only three states announced so far, I am not sure I have the stomach for the other 47! Thanks for keeping me updated!

Fortunately for your stomach, Sharon, most states do not make their information readily available.

It's sad that after seeing Florida's rates, 30-40% doesn't look that bad! :o

I know that Ohio released primary C-section data (for low risk first time mothers) recently, and it wasn't awesome.
