Quick Facts: Delivery Method

Mode of delivery, including vaginal births and cesarean deliveries (c-sections), can highlight important clinical practice patterns in perinatal health. PeriStats provides multiple indicators that can be used to assess trends in vaginal and cesarean delivery methods. It also provides trends in vaginal deliveries to women who had a cesarean section (VBAC) in a prior pregnancy, and in primary cesarean sections, which are cesarean sections performed on women who have never had a cesarean section.

• In Rhode Island in 2015, 30.6% of live births were cesarean deliveries.
