I had a c-section 12 years ago and since then have had 2 vaginal births with no complications. My local area hospitals have now implimented new regulations in which they will not perform a c-section after a woman has had one. I have looked online, called the hospitals and called the medical board. They all tell me the only way to avoid a c-section is to blow off the appointement and show up in labor, and at that time will be forced to sign paperwork saying that if anything (relating to not having the c-section or not) goes wrong I cant hold the hospital liable. The nearest hospital that will do a vaginal birth after c-section is about 45 minutes away. Has anyone else experienced this? What did/would you do? Would a 45 minute drive in labor be unsufferable?
