I knew Brazil had a high rate of C-sections, but I didn't realize it was as high as 82% for women who had private health insurance.

Women in Brazil are pushing for more of a say in how they give birth.  Brazil's federal government is even investing billions of dollars into a natural childbirth campaign.

Do you think the C-section rate will drop as a result of the new campaign?
