March of Dimes peristats

June 8, 2009

The March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center has created a PeriStats database (accessible from the March of Dimes website) that grants one free access to US, state, county, and city maternal and infant health data.  They have graphs, maps, summaries, quick facts, and a whole wealth of information regarding various perinatal statistics.  For instance:

Want to know the VBAC rate for your county?  (They rightly include the VBAC rate as a maternal and infant health indicator.)

Want to figure out the preterm birthrate for your state?

Interested in a quick overview on prenatal screening?

Looking for a summary on birth outcomes in your state?

Then check out this site!  It’s truly a wonderful resource for expectant moms and birth advocates.
