Transport and Cesarean Section rate of clients at Savannah Midwifery:
GeorgAnna's transport rate (of women in labor from home to the hospital) is 5.2%, or 3 clients in 5 years. Newborn transport rate is 3.5%, or 2 in 5 years (one to the hospital, one to their Pediatrician). No Savannah Midwifery clients who transported from home to hospital had a cesarean, so her cesarean rate is currently 0%. This is by far the lowest transport and cesarean rate of any provider (midwife or obstetrician) in the region. What is the cesarean rate (and transport rate, if applicable) of your current provider? Always a good question to ask.
*note about dates of availability*:
GeorgAnna does not take clients with due dates of May 25 - August 12, 2015, or December 12, 2015 - January 18, 2016. This is so she can be with her family during summer vacation and the Christmas holidays. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I'm sure you understand the importance of family! Currently, August is full, and there is one space left for each month of September, October, and November (there is a limit of 3 clients per month). The office will be closed June 22nd-August 3rd, emails will be responded to periodically during these dates, phone calls will be returned after August 3rd.
