VBAC — or not VBAC?

It used to be the norm, that once you  had a Caesarian section, you always had to have one. Not any more. However, opinions differ greatly when it comes to  VBAC  decision. VBAC is now considered a safe option for most women expecting twins, moms who have had two prior c-sections with a transverse incision, and even for those with an unknown incision type. Recovery for VBAC is usually faster which means a shorter stay in the hospital.  This is a decision for you and your doctor together.  If you feel you want to try, about 80 % of VABCs are successful. If you like the odds, then go for it, if you choose to have another section, remember its only important that the baby arrive safely. Read more here from Heidi Murkoff of Whattoexpect.com .
