So we are matched with a birthmom in OH that is determined to have her 2nd VBAC. This is her 3rd child. The 1st was C/S (breech and C/S 2 days before EDD). The second child was VBAC and she went into labor naturally 17 days earlier the EDD. She said she will want an epidural this birth.
Are her chances of a VBAC this time good b/c she has a successful one under her belt?
Because she went early with the 2nd baby, does that mean she could be early this time?
What are the chances of her being induced if she's not progressing? Do most doctors want to C/S instead of induce?
Is there anything else that I need to know?

Sorry for bombarding you with questions. She desperately wants us there for the labor and delivery, so I fly out June 11th and my DH is coming out later. The EDD is June 26th. I haven't ever delivered so it's all pretty new. My SIL was amazing and let me be there in the delivery of her DS ~ pretty awesome. And emotional. Thank you for any help you can give!

I dont know nearly as much as some of the other ladies on here in regards to stats and research, but I will tell you that EVERY birth is different, so because she went early last time doesnt mean she will this time, and that goes for everything else in birth too

Are her chances of a VBAC this time good b/c she has a successful one under her belt? Yes - her chances of giving birth vaginally are every bit as good as basically every other woman with a "proven pelvis." Her body can obviously physically do it, but there are a million factors that can affect that - just like with every woman.

Because she went early with the 2nd baby, does that mean she could be early this time? I BELIEVE (and do not have stats handy) that if you go early with one you are more likely to go early with later ones. It is NOT guaranteed. And there is a lot of stuff said about the third birth being the "wild card." Moms who usually go early will go late or vice versa, moms with short labors will have a really long one, etc. This is ALL antecdotal. But I hear it a lot.

What are the chances of her being induced if she's not progressing? Do most doctors want to C/S instead of induce? This is something only she and her doctor will know. Most doctors will not induce or augment a VBAC. Some will.

Congrats on the match mama, and on one who so wants you involved is awesome! I think ICAN would be a great resource on supporting a VBAC mama.
