LOWER THAN AVERAGE PRIMARY C-SECTION RATE Rome Memorial Hospital has consistently had a lower than national average Primary C-section rate for many years. In 2012, a leading national consumer magazine ranked Rome Memorial Hospital the best in New York State for having a low Primary C-section rate for mothers who anticipate a low risk delivery. The rate in 2012 was 5.7%, the lowest of the 20 hospitals in the region. In 2013 the rate was 8.5% and 11.1% in 2014. This is far below the national average of 27% for primary cesarean sections according to the CDC. Teamwork is the key component of the birthing philosophy here at Mohawk Valley Women's Health Associates and Rome Memorial Hospital. The doctors, nurses and patients all work together to facilitate the natural birthing process.

THE NATURAL CESAREAN BIRTH To improve the experience of women having uncomplicated cesareans, we are embracing a new technique called Natural Cesarean Birth. This technique is done in the operating room and is intended to mimic some of the same steps a woman experiences with a vaginal birth. It allows the parents to actively participate in the birthing process by directly observing the birth and doing early skin to skin contact with their baby. It promotes early bonding, breastfeeding and improves the overall satisfaction of the birthing process for the parents. But, most of all it engages the parents as active participants in the birth of their child. Please feel free to discuss Natural Cesarean Birth with any of our providers.
