Supplementary notes

* Data is for first-time mothers-to-be who should be at low risk for a cesarean: pregnant women expecting just one child (not twins, triplets, or other multiples) and whose baby is full-term and is positioned head first—the position least likely to require a C-section.
The U.S. national C-section target for first-time mothers with low-risk deliveries is 23.9%.
