MOV Birth Statistics
The following is a list of birth & c-section rates in the Mid Ohio Valley.*
*Our c-section rate is very high in this area (as is in the rest of the country). Please note, simply because the percentage is lower, doesn't necessarily mean the hospital is more "birth friendly." You must take into consideration the amount of births that occur in that hospital all together. You must also consider these are only statistics, and your experience will be based on your education, care provider, nurses on staff, and any other labor assistance that may be available to you. Do your own research, get input from people in the area, and create a birth plan that will be placed in your file. Take a hospital tour of any hospitals that you're interested in, and research the pros and cons. Your location choice will have just as much impact on your birth as your care provider. This is updated as often as possible and reflects the most recent data I've been able to obtain; the year of data collection is noted in the total births section for each hospital.
