I'm not sure about the other communities, but just fyi for Bozeman you can get a VBAC with the midwives at the birth center in town. There is hope. I also think they will do them in Livingston, I'm not positive. MT can be pretty behind in lots of parts of the state, but some pockets are progressive.
Not everyone can get a VBAC with the midwives here. If I get pregnant, I can't, for technical reasons, not medical.
If one were to work with a lawyer on this issue, what would it entail? I imagine some women might not want to put it all out there on the line and then... not manage to push that baby out vaginally when everyone is watching her case.
I had a c/s 18 years ago, and my records have been destroyed. So, unfortunately, the midwives here can't see me for a VBAC without documentation of the kind of sutures I had. And no VBAC at the hospital...
I think I would be interested in doing whatever it took to increase awareness of this problem.
Here is a list of hospitals in MT that ban VBAC according to the national survey completed by ICAN in January. Please help us find women in these areas who may benefit from the legal help being offered by our probono lawyer. Thanks.
