I figured VA's C was from all the women up here in No. VA. demanding early inductions &c-sections to make things more convenient for them. I'd never heard of anything like it until I moved here.

Wow Katie, that's interesting. I'd never heard of that either but I only lived in Fredericksburg for a couple years and I wasn't pregnant than. You're probably right though.

When i had Laila one of the nurses said they aer no longer allowing drs to schedule inductions unless the patient has a medical reason.. so hopefully it helps the amount of problems with babies

OH and NY are both C's. NY could be because of the base and of course the city down south. I'm not sure why OH is a C though. When I had my first they would have let him stay in there til 42wks I'm sure of it!
