Ventura County Star

A long-demanded childbirth procedure not allowed at many hospitals will be revived at Ventura County Medical Center on June 1.

Officials of the Ventura hospital announced Tuesday that doctors will begin performing vaginal birth for mothers who previously have given birth by cesarean section.

Known as a VBAC for vaginal birth after cesarean, the procedure is not offered at many hospitals because of complication risks and liability concerns.
