VBAC is rare even in a hospital
SHOULD WOMEN ATTEMPT HOME BIRTH AFTER C-SECTION?
BY ROBERT L. BARBIERI, MD (MAY EDITORIAL)
It is hard to believe that home delivery after cesarean delivery is even considered in the United States in 2008. It is equally unbelievable for the American College of Nurse Midwives and the American Public Health Association to support the practice. I doubt that many obstetricians would attempt vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC)—even in a hospital—in a patient who has undergone two C-sections.
