    Guest article by Lisa Kehoe IBCLC, CLD, CPD, in honor of World Doula Week (March 22-28). Your vision of birth probably did not include having surgery.

Glad to find your website. The Center for Women’s Health is supportive of Vbacs. This is particularly important if you want to deliver at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ–very very very few doctors who cover there will do Vbacs. it has one of the highest c- section rates in the country! But the Center for Women’s Health will do them, as will the docs who cover them. I am still pregnant so I am waiting to see how that support translates into reality. But at least they are willing to consider it!

Englewood Hospital does Vbacs, and Dr. Nofit Weiss’s practice is supposed to be good. A friend trying for a Vbac at Englewood had a lot of options. There is at least one doc at Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck who does them (don’t know his name)–he supports a large orthodox jewish population who want to have lots of kids, so the limits c-sections place on having large families is important to them. I have been told that Hackensack Hospital does not have a ban but is not vbac-supportive.
