VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarian)

A Vaginal birth after Caesarian or trial of scar is normally done in hospital.  This enables the mom to give birth normally who previously had a caesarian.  The success rates are between 84% to 91.3%.  Screening and monitoring is important for the mom and baby’s safety.  During birth more monitoring occurs.

The  ICEA provides information on knowing whether a VBAC may be suitable for you – for more information link to their website here.
