The goal of Birth by the Numbers is to present accurate, up-to-date information on childbirth practices and outcomes in the United States and internationally. We strive to make timely data accessible and understandable to key audiences including prospective parents, clinicians, childbirth educators, college faculty and students, policymakers and the media. This non-commercial site focuses on translating a wide range of existing data into forms that anyone can use to better understand how childbirth is currently practiced and experienced.
