<p>Not sure where to post this but hoping someone can help!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have been told my numerous douals and midwives that statistics show that incidences of c-section rise on fridays/weekends or before holidays.  Has anyone seen a study, research, or numbers to back this up?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>thanks! </p>

<p>I tried googling it, found a lot of articles that state that fact, but none that I could find the citing on.  I believe they use birth statistics to come up with that fact.</p>

<p>I know the c-section rate is higher on Fridays and Tuesdays in a lot of areas because of a high rate of planned c-sections. </p>
