Final NIH VBAC Consensus Report

This is really welcome news. A government appointed panel has looked at the evidence objectively and concluded that VBAC should be a viable option for women. They also stated that in most instances it is as safe or safer than elective c/section, the opinions against VBAC were not evidence based and hospital policies that obstruct this option should be revisited. As always, they state more studies are warranted in several areas. Please read for yourself and forward to patients, colleagues and your institutions. Thanks, Dr. F
