VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) and VBAMC (Vaginal Birth After Multiple Cesarean) policy data provided and used with permission by Portland ICAN. All women are invited to ICAN meetings – I recently had a conversation with a leader at ICAN about encouraging more first-time Mamas to go to the ICAN meetings to learn how to prevent that first cesarean in to begin with. I think that’s a goal I can get behind! Don’t wait until you’ve been cut to learn about ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network). Learn everything you can because knowledge is power in birth!
[NB: I did read today that St. Vincent's has agreed to do VBA2C under certain circumstances, so their De Facto Ban may be changing soon]
