Rock & Roll Delivery

Posted: Updated:

A new hospital program in California looks to decrease the percentage of caesarian sections.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's "Rock and Roll" Program helps mothers to deliver naturally by moving labor along.

Nurses get women moving, even if they've had an epidural.  They change positions about every 30 minutes, and give expectant mothers position options.  The moves can also help mothers who are delivering naturally to manage the pain.

A doctor at the center says the moves/positions have been researched, and they're proven to assist in the descent of the babies.

The c-section rate in the U.S. has gone up from below 20 percent to now about 32.5 percent.
