New Mexico Cesarean Rates



New Mexico has the third lowest NTSV cesarean rate in the United States including DC. In 2015, the rate for first-time moms with low-risk deliveries was 18.1%. In other words, your odds of having a C-section in New Mexico are far lower than almost every other state.

If you've already had a C-section, New Mexico is one of the best states for VBAC, with a rate of 19.2% in 2014 according to CDC data. 

No recent hospital data is available publicly for New Mexico on a health department of hospital association web site. Please see links below for hospitals that voluntarily report.

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.
