Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Well, I can't say for a fact that it's not true, but it sounds preposterous.  Think about it: a mom has two medically necessary C-sections, then on her third she tries to do a vaginal birth but isn't progressing; everything's stuck, mom and baby go into distress, and the only responsible thing to do is to get the kid out via C-section.  Law prohibits it, mom and baby die. Really, what kind of state would have a law like that?

yeah i thought about that and i didnt say i heard it was a law, but more like ca insurance companies wouldnt cover a 3rd c-section. it is stupid but i was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard it.
