Perinatal Services BC publishes data for six facility-level maternal and neonatal indicators. The selected indicators are based on widespread relevance and validity of data from facilities and are measurable, clinically meaningful, and evidence-based. These indicators are:
- Vaginal Delivery for Eligible First-Time Mothers
Vaginal delivery rate for eligible nulliparous women aged 20 to 39 years with a singleton vertex pregnancy at term
- Early Repeat Cesarean Delivery
Early term repeat cesarean delivery without medical indication
- Post-Date Inductions Done Early
Post-date induction before 41+0 weeks gestation for women under 40 years of age at time of delivery
- Only Intermittent Auscultation in Low-Risk Deliveries
Exclusive use of intermittent auscultation in labouring women without risk factors who delivered vaginally
- Healthy Babies Fed Only Breast Milk
Healthy term singletons receiving exclusive breast milk from birth to discharge
- Attempted VBAC for Eligible Women
Attempted vaginal birth rate for eligible parous women under 40 years of age with a history of cesarean and a singleton vertex pregnancy at term
