Just have to say YAY!!!

I got an email from a contact I have about VBACs and such about what The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) released. They updated their practice guidelines for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)! It is great news!!

"ACOG states that VBAC is a safe and reasonable option for most women, including some women with multiple previous cesareans, twins, and unknown uterine scars. ACOG also states that respect for patient autonomy requires that even if an institution does not offer trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC), a cesarean cannot be forced nor can care be denied if a woman declines a repeat cesarean during labor."--from ICAN
