Induction of labor is safe for women who have had a previous cesarean birth and would like to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and is an options that can be considered.   Women who are in need of a induction for medical reasons or because an induction will help facilitate a vaginal birth are not prevented from doing so because they have had a previous cesarean birth. However, there are special considerations for these women.
