VBAC after C-section

My local county hospitals now longer allow women to delivery VBAC after they have had a C-Section.. Does anyone have any advise on how to fight there new policy. They say it's because of the 1% risk of obruption however I feel it's really due to not having to pay to have the approperate people on staff at all hours day or night. Advise Please.. I've had 3 VBAC's after my C-Section and OB is saying I have to have a C-Section.. Advise Please what do I do?

The closest hospital that does VBAC's is 2 hours away.

myzoo~ You might just have to go to that other hospital 2 hrs away. my local one doesn't allow VBAC, however the hospital I go to that's an hour away does. they regularly deal w/high risk pregnancies.

This is a tough discussion! I need to best Perinatologist in this county, however, to have a VBAC I have to go to a different county. Heck, my insurance may not even allow me to travel that far. I guess I can stick with current Dr. until my tests are done, then try to switch..Wow, that kinda stupid though, I don't know...Advise....
