Kentucky has one of the highest C-section rates and highest repeat C-section rates in the country. Even as most Kentucky hospitals ban or discourage women from having vaginal births after Cesarean (VBAC) in their facilities, they also want to restrict women from having VBACs in their own homes.
This short Birth Monopoly video looks at the reality families face in a state where, in many ways, hospitals have more control over birth than women do.
* Several folks have reached out to Birth Monopoly about having a similar video produced for their state. If you’d like more info about that, please contact us here.
