I have posted several times about The Birth Survey (an amazing project of CIMS). Well, now the results of the Survey are available online! Go to The Birth Survey site and click on View Survey Results by the word Connect. Remember that if you've given birth within the last three years, you are still eligible to take the survey and add your data to the nationwide results. My baby will be three next month and I completed the survey earlier this year.
A little more about the purpose of The Birth Survey:
"For years, consumers have enthusiastically shared online reviews of movies, restaurants, products and services, but readily available information about maternity care providers and birth settings was nearly unattainable--but no longer. The Birth Survey is now available to all women in the US who have given birth in the last three years. Women can now give consumer reviews of doctors, midwives, hospitals, and birth centers, learn about the choices and birth experiences of others, and view data on hospital and birth center standard practices and intervention rates."
