Join us on January 22, 2015 at 7pm as we welcome Dr. Heather Bartos, from Be. Women’s Health & Wellness, to speak about Vaginal Birth After Cesarean in North Texas. Dr. Bartos has been board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 2008. She is also certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultants.
“Per the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) is a reasonable and appropriate choice for most women with one prior cesarean and for “some women” with two prior cesareans. Being pregnant with twins, going over 40 weeks, having an unknown or low vertical scar, or suspecting a “big baby” should not prevent a woman from planning a VBAC.”
“45% of American women are interested in the option of VBAC, yet 92% have a Repeat Cesarean Section (RCS). Some women chose their RCS or it was medically necessary. Others felt like they didn’t have much of a choice for numerous reasons including hospital VBAC bans; immense social pressure; or the misrepresentation of VBAC risks.” ~www.vbacfacts.com
