  • Cesarean births among low-risk women with no prior births: reduce to 23.6 percent


  • A low-risk cesarean section occurs when a woman undergoes a cesarean section procedure when the baby is a single infant, is positioned head-first and the mother is full-term (at least 37 weeks), and has not given birth prior.1 Low-risk cesarean section rates were calculated using the National Center for Health Statistics 2018 final natality data.2 Low-risk cesarean section rates were calculated as the number of cesarean section procedures that occurred to first-time mothers of a single infant, positioned headfirst with a gestational age of at least 37 weeks (NTSV) divided by the number of first-time mothers of a single infant, positioned headfirst with a gestational age of at least 37 weeks (NTSV) multiplied by 1,000.
