Our Doctors and Medical Team believe in providing you with exceptional prenatal care and birthing experience personalized for you including VBAC delivery.
We strive to empower our expecting mothers or couples in their care and we do support vaginal birth after a cesarean section (VBAC delivery) for the right candidates after adequate discussion and counseling between you and your physician.
Generally, Ideal VBAC Criteria are:
- Preferably one previous cesarean section but not more than two previous cesareans.
- Prior Cesarean uterine incision was performed is low transverse fashion.
- No history of other uterine surgeries/scars from other non-cesarean surgeries.
- Having a history of prior vaginal delivery or prior successful VBAC significantly increases the chances of successful VBAC delivery.
- Fetal weight, at time of attempting VBAC, under 4,000gm increases the chance on a successful VBAC.
- Preferably prior cesarean delivery was performed due to non-recurrent reasons such as fetal malposition in labor (breech) or fetal distress in labor as opposed to a potentially recurrent reason such as large baby or maternal small pelvis.
- Spontaneous labor to start by the pregnancy due date as induction of labor is contraindicated for patients with prior cesarean section due to risk of uterine rupture.
