I am sure I am not the only momma that is planning or considering a Vaginal Birth after Cesarean. This will be my fifth time VBACing and I am pretty excited about it!

I would like to share some good places to read and get correct information about the risks (or lack of risks) associated with VBAC.

I started researching this when I was pregnant with my secod baby 9 years ago, so it has been a long time, so I probably can either answer your questions or know where to get the answers. So ask away

Informational sites:

VBAC Facts

"Abuse and Neglect" as Deterrents to Skilled Care inChildbirth? - The Unnecesarean -

C/S and VBAC Index Page (while this site is geared towards plus size moms, it is chock full of good information for ALL women)

International Cesarean Awareness Network

ICAN White Papers | International Cesarean Awareness Network

Research:
Good research showing the risk of using drugs to augment or induce labor when doing a VBAC. Obviously spontaneous labor is best, then suprisingly induction with pitocin and it was interesting to see that augmenting with pitocin was more likely to cause rupture. Proglastinids were the worst (things like cytotec or cervadil) Risk of uterine rupture in Australian women attempting vaginal birth after one prior caesarean section: a retrospective population- based cohort study

More studies to come...


And feel free to add anything you might have too
