018 VBAC - Who is a Good Candidate?

018 VBAC - Who is a Good Candidate?

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. Is it Right for You?


Long gone is the thought of once a cesarean always a cesarean. Women who have had a cesarean delivery in the past have the option of undergoing a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) delivery or planned repeat cesarean delivery (PRCD) in their next pregnancy.  Ideally, a planned TOLAC leads vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) but may end in an unplanned cesarean delivery.

How to decide if you are a good candidate for a TOLAC, VBAC or PRCD can be a hard choice for women to make. In this episode, we aim to give women some confidence in their choice regarding how they give birth after a cesarean. It is important to take into account personal preferences, as well as medical and pregnancy history

Other factors that influence a women's decision include the chance that a woman will end up with a VBAC based on various factors as well as a woman's chance of uterine rupture.  

If you have any comments or questions about VBAC please connect with us!
