SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – When you think of yelp, you think of restaurant reviews and service.

But now, expectant moms in California can go to yelp and check on hospital rates concerning C-sections.  This includes the percentage of C-section deliveries in “low-risk” pregnancies, to mothers having their first baby via the procedure, or if vaginal births are available after C-sections.

Andrea Forrest runs a Sacramento moms group on Facebook. She has had three different C-sections at two different hospitals.

“I would have been able to look around and maybe I probably would have. I’m a millennial mom I research everything.”

Yelp collaborated with the state and nonprofit organizations to gather these well vetted self-reported statistics.

The overall goal is to educate expectant moms and help them make better decisions about their healthcare; especially making them aware of institutions with higher rates of C-sections.
