The state of Florida has banned VBAC performed by midwives in birthing centers. This does not apply to homebirthing VBAC's with a certified midwife. The law states that birthing centers participating in a national VBAC study can perform VBAC's but the study has been closed for the past 7 years! So, as it stands, if a woman wants to have a VBAC she must either do so at home or attempt to find a doctor and hospital that support a trial of labor after previous ceserean. I've found that many hospitals have bans on VBAC in FL and if they don't the restrictions are so severe that a woman would be confined to her bed for the entirety of the labor and given pitocin after a certain amount of hours, which is proven to put more stress on the uterus with unnatural contractions and is not recommended for VBAC'ing women. Or there are simply no doctors in the area that provide VBAC care.
What can we do to change this?
