    Hi I am trying to find support for VBA2C. I never went into a trial of labor before. First c-section was due to fetal bradycardia and the second was due to fear of the doctor about the 1% risk of rupture. i am trying to find doctors in NYC/brooklyn that will be willing to give me a trial of vbac and monitor me well through the process.
