Mercy hospital in downtown Des Moines (on University) is supportive of VBACs as long as you find an OB who is willing to do it.
The OBGYN Associates in Des Moines is a group of doctors that are willing to do VBACs and who deliver at Mercy. They have several locations in the Des Moines area.
Erin from Iowa says: “Dr. Brent Hintz who practices in the Waterloo/CF area is supportive of VBAC’s”
