April Fools, of course. The hospital’s actual cesarean rate is no joke…

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.

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%.

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.

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)
