U.S. Cesarean Births Trends (1990-2013) PowerPoint Slides
Once upon a time (1990) one third of the states in the U.S. delivered less than 20% of their babies via cesarean section. Much has changed since then, starting in 2001 when Louisiana became the first state to reach a 30% cesarean rate. In the years that followed, the overall U.S. cesarean birth rate continued to increase and many states started delivering one out of three babies via cesarean. These slides depict the map of the U.S. with cesarean birth rate trends by state (1990-2013). The slides are freely available for use in classrooms and childbirth education classes.
