Your Birth Location Matters - A Lot!

Cesarean sections in the USA vary between 7% and 70% by hospital. It's a tenfold risk, depending on where you go. 
Neel Shah is an OB/GYN and the director of the Delivery Decisions Initiative at Ariadne Labs.
His research has shown that the hospital where a woman gives birth may be the single most important factor in whether or not she has a C-section.
In this podcast Shah will explain why that’s the case—and also what can be done to reduce a woman’s risk of having a C-section.
