Abstract:
2002 saw continuing rise in the birth rate in the hospital. 8022 mothers gave birth to 8162 infants. This was the busiest year since 1983. It was a 4% increase on births compared to 2001. The number of first time mothers delivering in the hospital continued also to increase and the figure for the year was 47.5%. If current trends continue the number of first time mothers will exceed multiparous parents in the ensuing years. The Caesarean section rate for the year was 15.5%. This is a 1% increase on the previous year. A full analysis of the Caesarean section rate can be found in the appropriate chapter. The increase probably represents a rise across all ten groups although it is worth noting that the rise in women who had a previous Caesarean seclion was certainly one of the factors.
