After you have had a VBAC, your risk of rupture drops to pretty much the same as any mom who has not had a c/s, so it is much easier to find a provider, and they are usually less scared of you. They are still considered VBACs though. *sigh*
In my experience, doctors put limits on all pregnancies, even first timers, so I don't know how to answer that one. I would think a good doc wouldn't be worried.
Yup, ditto to Meg. No matter how many VBAC's you've had, the docs still consider it a VBAC, and it all depends on their policy. Although, I imagine it might be a *little* easier to get a doc to agree if you've been successful before.

I was told by my VBAC doc that I'd still be considered a VBAC but that he wouldn't monitor me as closely as he did with Merrick. I was also told that there wouldn't be such a "push" from other docs to get baby here by due date since I've proven twice now that I go 5-7 days past my EDD with my babies.
Yes, it is always considered a VBAC. I am on baby number 6, and VBAC #5 and still getting resistance from my midwife on having a water birth because I VBAC. Even though I have had 4 perfectly successful VBAC's thus far.
