Low C-Section Rate

Supportive of VBACs

For women who have had a C-section for their first delivery and would like to attempt a vaginal birth for their second delivery, we support you. In fact, we are one of the few hospitals in the area that does support patients wishing to have a vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) delivery.
