Lowering the rate of preventable cesareans is vital to improving maternal-child health
Policies do not override a persons’ right to informed decision making.
VBAC bans are unethical and unenforceable for hospitals to institute. People have the right to informed refusal, which includes declining a cesarean.
For most people, VBAC carries lower risks than a repeat cesarean.
A healthy birth incorporates emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.
When a cesarean is necessary, it can be a lifesaving surgery, and worth the risks involved.
