Excerpt: "[Insert Practice Name] supports a client’s right to self-determination.
Therefore, we support clients who would like to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). We believe that in most cases, VBAC is a safe option for families. Because VBAC does carry some increased risk, we want to make sure that you fully understand the risks and benefits and are choosing this option knowing how a VBAC is different from other births.
