    Birthrights: The Risk of Choice

    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    If I remember correctly, when the user, shenzhennifer was preparing to give birth to her second child a few months ago the doctors in the public hospitals basically told her at first that VBAC was her only option but she had to really push for a second c-section as she wasn't comfortable that the HK docs and system could really handle any emergency a VBAC could present. I'd check with shenzhennifer.
