They're here! The 2005 cesarean rates by Northern Virginia Hospital show the alarming reality that women will face birthing in a hospital today. Being informed consumers is more important now than ever before, with the National Cesarean Rate at 30.2%, and the Northern Virginia rates at over 36% (in 2005).
