    I did some more research in the last week and the more i read the more i worry about VBAC. I am for natural everything, but this is seriously starting to worry me. Seems like the risk of a C-sec to mother and the baby are much, much less then the risks involved with VBAC.
    now i have THIS to worry about on top of work, nursing school and taking care of family. lol my head is going to expload

    So far, I decided to have a C-section if 1) if no baby at 38 weeks 2) if any kind of induction method is indicated

    Uterine rupture is rare but it does occur...Obviously increasing risk factors increases the risk....In 14 years of delivery, I have seen it happen twice....Once spontaneously while the patient was in labor and having good contractions ( without pit). It was later discovered that she had a genetic thinning of the uterine wall...Second one was a person on pit.....Good outcomes for both, thank goodness. Symptoms were quickly identified...
