So I am 35 weeks and I had a c-section with my son for completely none OB reasons, I was in an accident and had injured my eye. My doctors feel that they is no reason why I shouldn't be able to have a VBAC, but the hospital's policy is that you can't have a VBAC unless you have had a previous VBAC. I requested an exception from the hospital because of my special cirsumstances and they refused to even consider it. I love my doctors and trust them, and really don't want to go anywhere else, but I will not have another c-section because of a hospital policy when my docs don't even agree. I meet with my head OB tomorrow to discuss this but I have been trying to research my options. I know that legally they can't force me to have a c-section, and I also know that if I am too far along to have a c-section they still have to deliver the baby...but what I don't know is at what point could they still turn me away? If anyone knows of any statutes or other regulatory acts that define this I would really appreciate it.
