My eyes have just opened as big around as baseballs. And I think my jaw just hit my desk.
This is shocking, staggering, and heartbreaking.
at least the spokesmodel looks happy. :(
One wonders why they bother with vaginal birthing at all. Maybe they don't and just enough moms show up crowning to keep their rates from being 100%.
lulz. awesome turnaround.
Talk about false advertising... How can they claim to "baby" moms with a c/s rate like that?!
When I first saw the "We baby newborns" sign I thought it was a poorly translated sign in another country that someone was going to poke fun at. Something about it reads wrong...
And then the shocking 71% statistic. Though to their credit, the "and their moms" is in a MUCH smaller font. And you kind of have to baby C-section moms for the first few days, so I guess they are true to their words.
I'm with Miranda on this one. Cannot make my eyes go back to normal size.
Beyond flabbergasted!! I am surpried any obstetricians are still in business!
My midwife posted this to facebook and I have to say I'm not surprised. My primary care physician (who is also an educator) told me that he guessed the c-section rate in Miami to be around 70% - I guess he was right. This is why I'm TERRIFIED of birthing in a hospital. (I live in Miami)
