I am a birth activist and am in touch with a lawyer who might be interested in filing an anti-VBAC ban lawsuit in IL. I am looking for IL women who are currently (or will be in the future) facing a VBAC ban and might be willing to have the lawyer help her at no charge. Please email vbacbanhelp@ican-online.org and write "IL VBAC ban" in the subject line if you are intersted.

Also, please forward this email to any other lists you are on. Thanks.

What exactly are you looking for?

I know of several people who were scared into a second c-section for non-evidence-based reasons. I know several people who were forced to change providers when providers lost their ability to do VBACs.

I know VBACs that had HBACs with kindly midwives even though they weren't "supposed to" do HBACs....

West Sub midwives has lost their ability to do VBACs when they lost their backup doctor who had VBAC insurance which is ridiculously cost-prohibitive.

Let me know and I'll start looking for people!

I am looking for women who are currently pregnant or will be pregnant in the future and whose hospital bans VBACs as opposed to women whose individual caregivers can't or won't do them. I specifically need just the ones facing hospital instituted bans. Does that help?
