Look up your hospital’s stats!

When deciding on a hospital please do some research first. Here is a great resource to see the stats on hospital rates of early scheduled deliveries. This will give you insight into the hospital’s view on natural birth (and their C/S rate since inductions most often lead to C/S). Note that these rates only include deliveries BEFORE 39 weeks. If it included after 39 weeks as well then the rates would be MUCH higher.
