Abstract: 

The stories in this Roundtable Discussion are related by two women whose babies were born recently in Canadian hospitals. Each woman had undergone a cesarean delivery for her first child, and whereas Sophia delivered her second baby by vaginal birth after a cesarean (VBAC), Marie was unable to find a practitioner or hospital that would allow her to have a VBAC for her second birth. The women describe how they feel about their choices and experiences. Their two accounts and the issues that they raise are discussed in commentaries by a family physician, midwife, doula, and obstetrician. (BIRTH 37:3 September 2010)
