South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties) has some of the highest c-section rates in the country. Here, in the climate that gave birth to the VBAC Summit, it cannot be denied that cesareans, both primary and repeat, are reaching epidemic proportions.
Compounding the increasing rate of c-sections here and elsewhere are actual and de facto bans on mothers attempting a VBAC, which... limit, and often completely eliminate, the opportunity for vaginal birth for no reason other than a prior cesarean. In it’s third year, the VBAC Summit aims to provide childbearing women and health care professionals with access to educational information and support for vaginal birth after cesarean as well as resources for cesarean prevention.
