Yes.  You can plug in your numbers here:




Try plugging in  your numbers for before your first VBAC, and then put in your current stats.  I'm guessing your probability of success on a subsequent VBAC will be at least 95% (that's about what they were when I put mine in most recently), compared to more like 70% for a first VBAC.


FYI, here's a pretty nice commentary on that particular calculator:  http://givingbirthwithconfidence.org/2-2/a-womans-guide-to-vbac/vbac-success-rates-and-prediction-models-understanding-your-chances-of-important-outcomes/
