"Many women and many babies have benefited from a cesarean when the fetus is sick," Fleischman said. "But in fact, there is very little an obstetrician can do after 34 weeks of gestation other than deliver a baby," he said.

Fleischman thinks too many babies are delivered early to minimize risk, in part because the outcomes of infants delivered after 34 weeks are good. "But not as good as [a full-term birth]," he said.

Women need to understand how important it is for a delivery to go to term, Fleischman pointed out. "Fetuses are not just getting fatter in the last month," he said. "They are actually growing and developing. Their lungs and brains and kidneys are developing," he stated.

The findings are published in a report titled HealthGrades 2011 Obstetrics & Gynecology in American Hospitals.

Other highlights in the report include:

  • 7 percent of women having babies in hospitals had a complication. If all hospitals performed at the level of the best-rated hospitals, 32 percent of these complications (141,869) might have been avoided.
  • 9 percent of women undergoing gynecologic surgery had a complication. If a
