HEALTH: Study concerning C-Sections

A new study suggests which hospital a woman goes to could influence whether she has a C-Section.
The Consumer Reports survey looked at the C-Section rates at 1500 hospitals in 22 states.
It found that C-Section rates for women anticipating low-risk deliveries varied greatly, even at hospitals in the same town.
And there was no pattern to explain the difference besides choice of hospital.
Overall, 66 % of the hospitals earned Consumer Reports' lowest or second-lowest rating for a high rate of C-Sections.
Doctors say while some C-Sections are medically necessary, unnecessary C-Sections drive up costs and increase the risk for mother and child.
