Is there a list of Pro-VBAC hospitals?
I know that Southwest Washington Medical Center was sued for encouraging a mother to do a VBAC. She wanted a ERC and her baby was stillborn at 39 weeks. They were sued for not doing a CS when the mother demanded one at 38 weeks. They refused to settle out of court because they wouldn't be able to do VBACs anymore. The hospital won and can still do VBACs. I feel sorry for the family, but judgement in their favor would have forced many other moms into unneeded surgery.
It made the paper. I'll see if I can find it.
