The physicians at Atlanta Gynecology and Obstetrics, along with Decatur Midwifery, are excited to announce that commitment to our initiative of Avoiding the First C-Section is paying off in a huge way for our patients. For the first 9 months of 2017, our overall C-Section rate was 20%, which is 10% lower than the national average and 15% lower than the rates recently published by some Atlanta hospitals. Our primary C-Section rate for all of our first-time moms in labor was 14%, also lower than the national average. These numbers represent the hard work our midwives and doctors performed in shepherding our Moms and their families through sometimes long and difficult labors, tricky obstetrical situations, and heroic vaginal births after cesareans.
Congratulations to Atlanta Gynecology and Obstetrics, Decatur Midwifery, and our Moms for “pushing together “ for this great success story!
