What are the statistics on fetal demise and permanent damage to baby with uterine rupture/vbac? Not risk %. Actual statistics

1/700-1/1,000. Great question - the numbers are approximately one order of magnitude greater with trial of labor after a cesarean as compared to a repeat prelabor cesarean delivery: 1/1, 000 vs. 1/10, 000. In other words, rarely is the fetus compromised/dies, but repeat cesarean is clearly safer for the fetus. Talk to your OB to decide on the best plan for you, taking into account how many more babies you want.
