There is a wide variety of information available about Vaginal Birth
After Caesarean. Your decision about whether to plan a VBAC,
or to choose a repeat caesarean section is a very personal one.
There are many reasons why women choose VBAC. It is best to look
at the information available, speak with your partner and your care
provider and then make the decision that is right for you.
Information from the Next Birth After Caesarean Clinic at King Edward
Hospital in Perth is current and evidence-based. It was
written in 2008. www.wnhs.health.wa.gov.au/health/VBAC/index.htm
Childbirth Connection is an American not-for-profit organisation
that has been providing information and advocacy since 1918. Visit
