This is one of the most talked about maternity situations I noticed on the board I used to frequent.
There is always questions of whether it is safe, who one can see to have one, what hospitals allow VBAC’s.
Here are some different links I’ve found helpful in gaining information about VBAC’s and what stance some hospitals in Hawai`i take regarding them.
A local website and community of moms: http://www.momsinhawaii.com offers online discussions, support and advice, meet ups/play dates, sponsored events and more:
