ACOG's new VBAC Guidelines

ACOG apparently listened to the feedback from the NIH conference. These guidelines are FAR less restrictive, and a step in the right direction!

Ob-Gyns Issue Less Restrictive VBAC Guidelines

In making plans for delivery, physicians and patients should consider a woman's chance of a successful VBAC as well as the risk of complications from a trial of labor, all viewed in the context of her future reproductive plans


restrictive VBAC policies should not be used to force women to undergo a repeat cesarean delivery against their will if, for example, a woman in labor presents for care and declines a repeat cesarean delivery at a center that does not support TOLAC.
