Q: Don’t hospitals ban VBAC because it is dangerous? A: They ban VBACs under the guise of patient safety. But patient safety is a euphemism for “we don’t have a good evidence-based reason to do it, other than we don’t want to get sued, it’s more expedient, and we make more money from c-sections—the hospital does, not necessarily the physician, but the hospital does—so we’re going to ban it because it’s easier for us, and we’re going to say it’s for patient safety because of the risk of rupturing the uterus.”
If someone has told you that VBAC is illegal, they are either misinformed or they are intentionally misleading you for a variety of reasons. Ask them to show you the law. This is something you should be able to easily look up through a google search. You won’t find it because it doesn’t exist.
