    In my previous life in big city high risk hospitals, we did lots of VBACS. We needed to know the previous incision was a low transverse that healed without infection. We found that about 3/4s of the women who were previously sectioned for CPD or failure to progress were able to VBAC a larger baby than the one they were sectioned for.
    I was wondering if I was the only who'd seen this.
    If I may make an understatement, CPD is not the world's most accurate diagnosis.

    It happens all the time, and I think because "CPD" especially in a primip is usually related to a malpositon. Its not often got anything to do with the size of the kid. I have a colleague who was sectioned at fully for her first because of an OP high head. She was told by an ob that she would NEVER birth vaginally. She didn't listen and presented fully dilated and pushed out a baby who was bigger, a short time later.:spin:
