NJ Low-Risk CSections
This model estimates the number of low-risk C-sections that will be performed in NJ. These estimates are based on the best available evidence in the literature.
There are four interventions that can reduce the number of low-risk c-sections:
1) Allowing movement and positioning other than supine in the first stage of labor ("Supine")
2) Encouraging the use of doulas and creating doula-friendly policies ("Doula")
3) Improving access to and promoting quality childbirth education ("Childbirth Education")
4) Tracking provider-level C-section rates and conducting case reviews ("Tracking and Case Review")
Experiment with the interventions by moving the sliders below.
Each slider indicates the number of NJ hospitals in which the intervention is implemented. Zero indicates that the intervention is not used. Fifty-three indicates full implementation.
