Since I have a birth coming up, I looked up the 3 closest hospitals to me to see what ratings were provided and found that they listed the hospitals C-Section, VBAC, and Episiotomy rates. The website lists their methodology for coming up with these numbers.
I'd been curious about these numbers before and wondered if there was an easily, accessible place to find this information. Perhaps this information will be helpful to other women in the area.
(please let me know if that link doesn't work... I was redirected there from the CareFirst website under Member Services/My Account information).
ETA: Looks like you have to login to use this service, so I guess it's only available to CareFirst subscribers/users. Darn.
