C-Sections

I watched this video on You-Tube titled: Eugene Declercq: the Truth about C-Sections. I thought it was interesting considering (warning: personal opinion coming up) St. Joseph county doesn't seem very VBAC friendly (excluding home births). There is a move going on to make some local hospitals more "baby-friendly" wouldn't it be AWESOME to make St. Joseph county more VBAC friendly?
