Cesarean Births Trends (1990-2013) in the U.S.  – PowerPoint Slides

Slide24Once upon a time (1990) one third of the states in the U.S. delivered less than 20% of their babies via cesarean section and no state even reached a 30% cesarean rate.  Much has changed since then, starting in 2001 when Louisiana became the first state to ever reach a 30% cesarean rate. With each following year the overall U.S. cesarean birth rate continued to steadily increase, with individual states reaching highs that exceeded 36% and Alaska being the only remaining state in the U.S. delivering less than 20% of its babies via cesarean in 2010. These slides depict the map of the U.S. with its corresponding cesarean birth rates over the years and provides a clear visual of cesarean rate trends between 1990 and 2013.  The slides are freely available for use in classrooms, childbirth education classes, and other settings.
