Sorry... but I'm grading students on percentaging right now!Â

You are completely correct. I'm a scientist and should have caught that one. I do percent solutions almost daily. Opps.

I make those mistakes all the time.Â  It just so happened that I was grading similar calculations in students' assignments, came on here to take a break and caught it right away.Â

Â

Always fun to make those mistakes in front of the class too

Thanks for this poll & the other poll. It will be interesting to see the numbers.

Â

I just want to add that even if the results show that relatively few women on MDC are having c-sections and/or relatively few births are by c-section, it's still an issue that has importance here. No pregnant woman can be certain that she won't have a c-section; it's something everyone should at least have basic information about.

LOL. Yeah, I'd be quick to correct the mistake if one of my students made it. I even started out with 101+29 written on my paper, then got lured in by the easy math of 30 and 100.

I agree but I think the poll numbers seem to be saying that it is way more births than people may have thought.

Â

5 vaginal births, 1 c/s. Planning a repeat c/s for a laundry list of reasons for baby #7.

2 vaginal births, planning a homebirth with this baby.

4 vaginal births

I have had a vaginal,C/S and then a VBAC birth.

So what are these numbers showing us?Â  I am glad to say that we already are going to get the C/S forum so I'm very happy about that.Â
