Well, Who knew??? Who would've ever thunk it?? I'm stunned!!!
THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF OBSTETRICIANS AND GYNECOLOGISTS SUPPORTS VAGINAL BIRTH AFTER A CESAREAN!! Not just ONE!!! TWO OR MORE!!!
I can't believe it!!
But they do. Read this:
"In the absence of contraindications, a woman with one previous cesarean delivery with a lower transverse uterine incision is a candidate for VBAC and should be counseled and encouraged to undergo a trial of labor (A: II-2).
A woman who has had two or more previous cesarean deliveries with lower transverse uterine incisions, who has no contraindications, and who wishes to attempt vaginal birth should not be discouraged from doing so (B: II-2)."
I didn't write that, ACOG did.
Now, go out and tell your obstetrician that the American College- HIS (or HER) American College has stated that women with one or two or more previous cesareans who wishes to attempt vaginal birth should be supported, encouraged, accompanied, loved, protected, through it.
And guess who is really good at supporting, encouraging, accompanying, loving, protecting women through spontaneous vaginal births.......
