Missouri Cesarean Rates


Missouri's 2015 NTSV cesarean rate was met the Healthy People 2020 target. 23.6% of first-time moms with low-risk deliveries give birth by cesarean.

In 2014, 13.5% of women with a previous C-section gave birth vaginally. It's a bit better than the national average.

Contact your state department of health and ask if they will publish hospital-level maternity data.

If you don't see your hospital's rate on the Leapfrog Group web site, it's because they don't report their maternity data to the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. Take action! Ask them why not.
