Wyoming Medical Center: Allow women to have VBACs without giving up their rights.

Women should have supported choices in their healthcare. Help support the women of Wyoming in having a voice about their labor and delivery experiences in Casper! 

Despite updated VBAC guidelines from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), Wyoming Medical Center policy dictates that any woman who has undergone a C-section in the past be forced to have a repeat C-section. If a woman chooses to proceed with a VBAC, she must waive numerous rights and privileges, including access to an epidural and several labor & delivery resources that would normally be available to her.

"The College says that restrictive VBAC policies should not be used to force women to undergo a repeat cesarean delivery against their will..."
