We are very excited to share with you our 2016 statistics. As we gathered data from the surrounding area, we were stunned to find most of the hospitals still have a steadily growing cesarean rate.
For the 13 years Allen Birthing Center has been operating, our cesarean rate has hovered just at or right below the national birth center average of 4%. We consider this a great achievement compared the national overall average of 33%.
For 2016, we are proud to announce our cesarean rate was only 2%!
It shouldn’t be a secret that birth centers give you a much better chance at a vaginal birth than a hospital, yet over 98% of babies are born in hospital. We are very proud of the support and evidence based care our CNM team provides our clients. Their expertise, training, and trust in the labor process are what give mothers the best shot at having the low risk, low intervention birth of their dreams.
We are dedicated to continuing this model of care and look forward to what 2017 has in store!
