Potentially HUGE VBAC news!


ACOG issued new VBAC guidelines today, potentially affecting the way VBA2C will be handled. Previously, ACOG recommended VBAC only for women who have one c-section and who had a low transverse scar. The new guidelines recommend for trial of labor after two transverse low incisions, women who are carrying twins and also women with an unknown type of scar. They also state that a cesarean cannot be forced and care cannot be denied if a woman refuses a c section while in labor! I am curious and excited to see what avenues will open up as a result of these new guidelines!
