What is a VBAC?

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) is an option for birthing women who have had one or mutiple previous cesareans and wish to birth vaginally.  "In 2010, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reaffirmed the same information they had shared at their landmark 1980 summit on VBAC and shared that yes, VBAC labors have a very high rate of success for most women," according to the International Cesarean Awareness Network.
