VBAC and medical ethics, research project

| | Comments (1)

If you can help Birgitta, please contact her directly - contact information is at the end of her request.
I have decided to undertake my research for the fall semseter on VBAC. I am arguing that failing to provide VBAC is unethical, infringes on a woman's autonomy, and can even put her at unnecessary risk, etc.
I have been given permission to use anecdotal evidence as proof of the lack of availability in cities, rural areas etc. I will NOT use anyone's name in my paper.

Would those of you who have been denied VBAC mind emailing me with
the location where you were denied VBAC and the name of the hospital or health care system as well?
Also, could you let me know who delivered you (i.e., MD, CNM, no one, etc) and where you ultimately delivered (i.e. at home, hospital, hospital after ambulance transport).

If there is anything else you'd like to share, please do!

Warmest Regards, Birgitta
