    I believe the C-section rate on average is somewhere around 30%. Each hospital, area of the country, etc. varies with c-section rates. Your group of friends is definitely not the norm as far as the high rate of c-sections. I will have to have one in two months for medical reasons (dangerous for me to go into labor -uterine rupture possible), otherwise I would hope not to have to go that route. I didn’t vote since I haven’t actually delivered, yet. 🙂

    I am actually delivering at a hospital that has a 35% rate of c-section. People around here know about the hospital and think negatively because if the higher rate of c-section. However the chief of obgyn handles mainly high risk patients, which contributes to the high rate of c-sections. But 4 out of 5 seems like an awful lot. Were they all older and had fertility issues? There are many reasons people have c-sections and I think peopl having children later in life has probably contributed to this.

    I had a c-section, but at my hospital they are trying to lower the rates of c-section and only do them if they are really necessary rather than just elective c-sections
