VBAC BAN reversed

Frederick Memorial Hospital, in Frederick Maryland, is one of Maryland's only two hospitals that ban VBAC. Women rallied there in Nov. '04 to protest the newly implemented ban and the rally prompted a front page, NY TIMES article on the nationwide problem of VBAC bans. Since then, I have been applying constant pressure to FMH via the media and from gov't agencies that I have been attempting to get involved.
The hospital has just announced that they are planning on reversing their ban! They still need final administrative approval but that shouldn't be a problem because the administrators have wanted to end the ban.
