    Re: Pregnant Women Warned: Consent to Surgical Birth or Else

    I'm wondering if the hospital's/doctor's malpractice insurance will refuse coverage for a vaginal birth after previous C-Sections. But as with all of these types of stories there has got to be more to it.

    go read the site i linked. there are plenty of dangers and risks. which is why many hospitals and more so midwives won't do them.

    Not necessarily. The reason why my doctor wouldn't even consider a VBAC after my first was because of problems both my son and I had. It was deemed risky to my next 2 sons during my pregnancy.

    why is it everytime you are presented with evidence that says otherwise you claim it is wrong.

    it is not wrong it is correct there are greater dangers to a women that is having a vbac than one who has never had a c-section.

    Not really to the child though. I don't buy that at all. Now should the hospital and patient be prepared to switch to a c-section and avoid the "emergency" aspect that raises the issue, sure, then the baby is in no more danger than a usual c-section.

    OK, I feel better, as I was just digging through looking for the link and could not find it either.

    that could be it as well. they might not cover if something goes wrong, and you know for a fact that if something did go wrong waiver or not she would sue for millions.
    thing is she lost her suit against the hospital which means that they could go after her for the their legal expenses if they wanted to.

    she ended up having to have a c-section anyway.

I do not accept that and even have forced them to let me smoke in my room (a private) room, and have guests after hours. They hated me, I'm sure.

    Now that I'm un-plumbed, I've not seen a doc since the plumbing was removed, and don't intend to. From here on out I'll live and die by whatever happens to me without medical treatments. I mean if I break a leg, okay, I'll get it casted, but no more surgeries, none. I've had it with the whole business.
    Years ago people stayed in the hospital for 5 days after delivery. Now it's 1 day. I was sent home 3 days after my last c-section, and I wanted to stay, but was told that was standard. I also have seen my husband and kids pushed out sooner than I think they should have been. In this day and age it appears to be the opposite of what you say here.

    I swear I just read it. It gave the dates that the CDC recommended against VBAC and that ultimately in mid 2000 they rescinded it and had determined that it was about equal to going straight to a c-section. Now it's poof gone.
