Abstract

A study was initiated to investigate the impact of information dissemination in Illinois upon the projected rise in the cesarean birth rate over the period from 1986 through 1988. The total cesarean birth rate in Illinois had not changed significantly during this period, whereas the rate of vaginal births after cesarean sections (VBAC) increased by 58.4% (p <.001). Information dissemination may have contributed to stemming an increase in the cesarean birth rate in Illinois while promoting VBAC deliveries.
