NIH VBAC Conference

Hi All, Just home from Bethesda, MD and the NIH VBAC consensus conference. So much to tell but too late tonight. The evidenced based data presented was very supportive of VBAC and patient autonomy in decision making. Whether that will be the consensus and whether it will make any difference with the forces against it remains to be seen. I suggest for the greatest details and insights you look to Jen Kemel's site at

In the coming days I will do my best to summarize my thoughts and observations and report on the consensus statement due out tomorrow afternoon. The statement will be published online at

Archived videocasts of the entire conference will be available in approximately 1 week at
