mom of (8) (5) (3) and born at home on Christmas day!
Next was after long labor with no progression: 5:55pm
Last, was scheduled: 1:23 pm
A friend of mine who has a bicornate uterus (di-something, where she has two of everything) and has had 3 scheduled c-s, said she prefers to schedule for 6am because of the "no eating after midnight" thing. She had one surgery at 3pm and said she was starving.
If hospitals can't personalize things enough to even handle that kind of variation, it's no wonder their malpractice rates are through the roof.
I think you'll need to seperate scheduled vs "emergent" or "emergency" c/s in order to get useful data. It would make complete sense that scheduled surgeries would take place during "normal' hours (if that really is the purpose of the survey).
I waited until shift change at 7 a.m. before I consented to surgery. My options were to have my OB do the surgery after being up all night on call, or to wait for her partner to come on duty. I really liked my OB a lot, and I didn't know her partner at all, but I'd rather have a well-rested surgical team than one that's sleep-deprived and in a rush to finish and go home...
