can you tell me about having vbac success?

Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
VBAC non starter: VBAC, or vaginal birth after C/section, can be successful if the right patient is very closely monitored in labor to diagnose an avoid cataclysmic rupture of the uterus. However, due to medico-legal issues or time constraints, many MD's are justifiably unwilling to take on that particular challenge in practice. If you find a MD to consider that procedure you must be willing to accept the risks.
