“An Unnecessary Cut”, 20 min video on Hospital VBAC

This video is timely and a valuable resource for birth workers. It’s a good length (20 mins) and it addresses that large number of women who are not ready for a home birth for a VBAC.

This is the last week of her pregnancy. Enjoy and tell me what you think of it. Gloria
