Primary Cesarean Reduction Initiative

FPQC stakeholders have proposed an initiative to reduce low-risk primary Cesarean sections in Florida.

Florida has the fourth highest rate among U.S. states. A recent analysis of birth certificates showed that the cesarean rate for Nulliparous Term Singleton Vertex (NTSV) cesareans ranges from 6.6% to 59.5%. This variation provides a major opportunity for improvement.
