At my hospital here they will not induce at all for VBAC.
What is this the policy where you are?
Where I'm at they will induce with Pit; I assume at low doses but we haven't gotten to that point yet. In order to qualify, you need to be effaced and dilated to a certain extent. They will not use misoprostol (sp?) or the foley cat. Oh, and they do strip membranes first to see if that gets things going.
I'm in Belgium so YMMV. I switched hospitals to one out of town to get the best VBAC possibilities:
42wks is ok, has 4 baths in 5 L&D suites so I'm guaranteed to get a bath, membrane sweep, low dose pit ok, foley cath ok, CFM and monitoring of internal pressure ok in the bath as long as the numbers look good for labour and birth. My new OB is one of the few in the country who is willing to do a VBAC with breech so she is very skilled. My bean was breech but has now turned--phew!
Artificial prostoglandins are out.
But I'm 41wks +2 with a Bishop Score of 5 so they probably wouldn't be necessary in any case. I bf with DD (17mos) and am doing homeopathics, walking, evening primrose capsules internally because DH is unfortunately sick with flu and not able to make his natural contribution to putting baby there and helping him get safely out. I'd do acupuncture if my budget could swing it. My double electric breast pump and castor oil are on the back burner of ideas for the end of the 41st week if necessary. I should go in for a membrane sweep too this weekend...
