I've heard about this, too; on a more mainstream discussion board, there are a lot of ladies who are complaining about this because they live out in the country and don't have a level III care facility and are being refused the option of VBAC. CAN YOU IMAGINE??? Urrrgghhh..... the nerve!!!!!
I wonder which states this affects, and to what extent, because I'm pretty sure our local freestanding birth center will still give VBAC support... unless these "guidelines" affect their back-up hospitals who may refuse support of out-of-hospital VBACers. I know the homebirth CPM I use will still do them, because she could really give two sh*ts about what the ACOG says, but I feel really sorry for all those women who want to have hospital VBACs but aren't "allowed" under the new ACOG guidelines. How ludicrous!!! :mad:
