Lucero's Home VBACIn most situations, VBAC is a safe option.  Recently, the NIH (National Institutes of Health) issued a statement regarding VBAC on March 10, 2010.  They said, “Given the available evidence, TOL (Trial of Labor) is a reasonable option for many pregnant women with a prior low transverse uterine incision.” Additionally, “We are concerned that medico-legal considerations add to, as well as exacerbate, these barriers. Policymakers, providers, and other stakeholders must collaborate in the development and implementation of appropriate strategies to mitigate the chilling effect of the medico-legal environment on access to care.“  The entire statement can be read at: http://consensus.nih.gov/2010/images/vbac/vbac_statement.pdf
