In brief: VBAC Candidate

Any patient who has a good chance to deliver vaginally (no previa, prior vag del, nl transverse scar, etc) is a good candidate.
But, you need to labor in a facility equipped to perform emergent c-sections in case of dehiscence or rupture of the uterus.Your OB can tell you if you're a good candidate, keep you safe in labor, & have the ability to perform a quick "vaginal bypass" if needed. Good luck.
