  • Once upon a time, the prevailing wisdom was “once a cesarean, always a cesarean.” Thankfully, those days are long gone, but the rate of successful VBACs (vaginal birth after cesarean) still differs widely from one hospital to the next. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right hospital for your special delivery.

    A passionate advocate for lowering cesarean rates, MarinHealth Medical Center OB/GYN Dr. Lizellen La Follette talks about the hospital’s pro-woman, patient-centric approach to labor and delivery. The key is letting you take your time while nature takes its course. Listen and learn why MarinHealth Medical Center made the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative’s C-section Honor Roll for their exceptionally low cesarean rate.
