My Birth Junkie Birth

Something bloggy and exciting happened this last week.  Jill at The Unnecesarean posted the 2007 Cesarean rates in the US, and I was inspired to create an accompanying visual.  I spent a while looking for a web app that would take a straightforward data set like that and generate a colored map, but didn't find anything.  So I put my mad Paint skills to work and made one myself, then sent it to her.  She posted it a few days later and it was then reposted on the ICAN blog.  How cool is that!

I later found this site which could have done the same thing, but my hand-made original was prettier anyway.

I'm using Jill's version of my map graphic, because she had the good sense to add a title and source!

  1. That's very cool! You're a map-producing maverick! :)
