The rate of births by cesarean around 90% in more developed regions of Brazil. In other regions, the rate exceeds 60%. The average equivalent to births in China and is well below the 25% recorded in European countries. While in developed countries the medical intervention is about women and newborns at risk, in Brazil it occurs in healthy mothers.

The project is funded by CNPq and aims to investigate the labor and birth in Brazil through a national survey with 24 000 pregnant women in Brazil, serving a notice of the Ministry of Health Faculty and graduate students Department of Nursing Faculty of Medical Sciences (FCM) of Unicamp are responsible for data collection in six hospitals in the region of Campinas, divided into private, public and mixed with and without neonatal intensive care unit.

We are starting interviews in the second and third hospitals in the region of Campinas. In each, are interviewed 90 mothers and do a follow her and her newborn after 60 days. The data is sent to Fiocruz, which is doing the mapping of Brazil, said the nurse Antonieta Keiko Kakuda Shimo, responsible for Group Research in Women's Health Nursing Department of FCM Unicamp.
