I moved to Denmark 2 years ago, where the c-section rate is lower, and I asked my doctor if I could have a VBAC. He laughed and said, "that is the standard practice - we only do a c-section if you ask for one." In Denmark it is standard practice to do VBAC, because since surgeons do the transverse cut now, instead of the vertical cut from many years ago, vbac mothers are considered to be the same low risk as mothers who have not had a c-section.

the risks that people talk about concern the older version of the surgery - they don't apply to us who have had babies in the past few years.
