Ob-Gyns Make Guidelines Less Restrictive for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean, or VBAC.

Many women who have had a cesarean section delivery -- and some who have had two C-sections -- can safely attempt to deliver vaginally, according to updated guidelines on vaginal birth after cesarean, or VBAC, issued by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Check out the newest guidelines for going VBAC on this WebMD article.

Does it change how you felt about c-sections or delivering VBAC? Tell us why or why not below in the comments.

I think that's fantastic! I had a c-section with my DS & am planning for a VBAC with this LO. I am very fortunate to have an extremely supportive mid-wife & have a hospital open to VBAC's, but unfortunately that is not the norm. I hope that more women consider their options for subsequent pregnancies after VBAC's, especially if the options are open to them. It's certainly not the choice for everyone, but it has a stigma of being extremely dangerous & when compared to repeat c-sections, that is not always the case.
