My mw miscalculation of my due date has really disturbed me. Not for myself so much, but for other women who are not so proactive in their own cycles and gestation periods. A two week miscalculation of a due date pretty much sets the woman up for a cesarean from the get go. Scary stuff.
I found a website that lists the cesarean rate by state and hospital, but am not finding a site for cesarean rate by doctor. Is this public information? Would I have to call the hospital to find this information?

If you do find out, also take into account the kinds of patients they see and how high-risk they are, and whether that's broken out in the statistics. A MFM specialist will (typically) have a higher rate than a regular OB who will (typically) have a higher rate than a CNM. But that's because they see different patient populations. So a blanket rate won't necessarily tell you much about *your* chance of a c/s based on your risk factors. Ideally see if you can get the stats for patients who are similar to you.
