Lol thanks. This is the 8th time this has been posted in this forum that I know of.
That is because we have been looking for women since last July without any success. I've been leading the national VBACtivism effort since early 2005 and searched for a long time to find a pro-bono lawyer willing to help. It is extremely frustrating to me to finally have one on board and yet not be able to find a VBAC denied mom for her to work with. Women have complained to ICAN for a long time that they don't have access to VBAC, that they would have to get in their cars and drive 8 hours in labor to get to a VBAC accepting hospital, etc. etc. but now that we have legal help for them they are no where to be found. Please do help spread the word.

What exactly are you looking for? total bans?
Here in Alaska most hospitals will take VBAC women. I think only one does not. However, the state regulations forbid Midwives from attending out-of-hospital VBACs.
can we fight that???
Do we have to be pregnant? Do we have to reside in that state that has a VBAC ban?
I would LOVE to get the hospital in Bozeman MT to allow VBACs. But I dont live there.
