Some Local Hospital Statistics

I just read about birth statistics from one New York Hospital. Absolutely appalling!

NY Presbyterian Hospital-- New York Weill Cornell Center

48.8% episiotomy

39.6 % of all births are c-section (37.2% are first time c-sections)

96.4% of vaginal births include epidural

79.7% of babies are given formula in the hospital
