A good dialogue going---and it IS interesting to see women who HAVE read articles and who have done their research choose RSC.  I had a mom the other day who was an "excellent VBAC candidate"--heck she 4 cm and in good labor when she showed up----I made another plea but she wanted her C. Section--and is home now ----  she had no regrets--and it is SHE who will remember her birth---I feel I did all I could but as you can see--there are MANY factors that make one women choose VBAC and another choose repeat CS.


I really think my role after I have done my best is to SUPPORT her---not to make her feel she made a mistake in choice.  As stated above--for some women--the method of delivery is not a pivotal occasion.


I do hope this keeps dialogue going--as lowering CS is something I aim for---but I really feel that the one thing that can lower the rate is to do everything we can to get that first baby out SAFELY----VAGINALLY so that VBAC is a much smaller piece of the pie...
