Today, ACOG, the leading voice concerning all things obstetrical, issued a press release for less restrictive guidelines for VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). You can read this press release here:
This is a great step in the right direction. Make sure your own midwife, OB/GYN, nurse practitioner, childbirth educator, etc, have seen this release. Why not print off a copy and take one to your OB/GYN, particularly if you have had a previous cesarean section?
We are making changes in safer, less interventive, and less restrictive options for pregnant women.
