VBAC Myths Debunked
Wed, 10-02-2013 - 10:26am

When a lot of women think about Vaginal Birth After Cesarean, also known as VBAC, they think about old, outdated information that has been passed around in the last decade as the rate of vaginal births after previous cesarean deliveries has dropped drastically.

This trend has been very concerning for most in the childbirth field, from medical professionals to those of us like myself who work as support or as childbirth educators. For myself, as a mother who has had two previous cesarean sections, one being a long labor trying to have a successful VBAC, this has become a passion of mine.

Education is the key to making safe choices in your medical care and childbirth, especially after having a previous cesarean delivery.


Great info!  Have you heard these myths before?
