13 VBAC Myths
Fri, 06-21-2013 - 1:07pm

Many women believe that the only safe choice after a cesarean is another cesarean. Social pressure plays a huge role in a woman’s decision making process and the prevailing American conventional wisdom is greatly influenced by persistent and pervasive myths about vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). The result is a 92% repeat cesarean rate in America (1) despite the fact that most women are candidates for VBAC and most VBACs are successful.  Let’s draw a clear line between myth and fact.


Interesting facts! Anything not included in the article that you'd like to mention?
