When I was planning my UC I read a ton of books and websites to gather information about possible complications during birth.  I didn't take notes and now I'm trying to track down the information again for a little presentation to a college class about birth options.  Can someone point me to some stats on the incidence of complication?  I seem to recall it being 5% and the breakdown something like: 3% PPH, less than 1% shoulder dystocia, less than 1% prolapsed cord, less than 1% placenta previa, etc. I'm also interested in rates of infant resuscitation, etc.

 

Thank you!!!
