Birth Boot Camp Statistics 2012-2013

Birth Boot Camp® childbirth classes strive to prepare couples for natural birth. In an effort to continually improve our curriculum and provide the absolute best education available, we seek feedback from our students.

Our instructors are required to compile statistics from their students. As a company, we spend many hours reaching out to our online students to find out how their births went and their thoughts on the class. We compile all of the information we receive and use it to make updates and improvements.

At the time of this posting, we have received reports on 359 students, total.

Without further ado, we present the current Birth Boot Camp statistics:

In contrast, the national US C-section rate is 32.8%. (Source, CDC.)

The overall US epidural rate is 61%. (Source, CDC.)

We are excited that we can offer an education that can help families have the birth that they desire.

You CAN have an amazing birth! Education makes the difference.
