How Interventions Increase Cesarean Rates

The group with the fewest cesarean births, with only a 5% C-section rate, were the mothers that were not induced and did not have the epidural.  Mothers who were not induced but had the epidural had a 20% cesarean rate.  Fifty percent of induced mothers, regardless of whether or not they had the epidural, had a caesarean birth.  This chart clearly shows how interventions can affect the chances of a cesarean birth.
