Try searching for 'single layer uterine incision" or "single layer uterine closure". It's controversial either way, but there is a lot of info and discussion out there.

Some OB's will use it as an excuse (as they will use everything) to not do VBAC, but overseas they ONLY do single layer sutering and their rupture rate is NOT higher, so she may have a harder time finding an OB if that is what she is looking for, but her risk is not shown to be higher.
And yes, most OB's say that everyone has to have repeat C/S.
