    • 2011. Victoria Colliver, San Francisco Chronicle, "C-section not necessarily end to vaginal delivery"
      "In contrast, women who live in El Centro (Imperial County) have vaginal births after cesareans, known as VBACs, at less than a tenth of the state rate and have some of the highest rates of cesareans in the state."
