What role does VBAC play in your practice? Do you think the updated guidelines will impact access on VBAC for women? While I would like to see VBAC be an option for more women, and support the College's updated guidelines, I am skeptical that they will have a large impact on availability for women of a trial of labor following cesarean without a drastic change in our medicolegal environment. What are your thoughts?If you log into Medscape, you can read the responses to these questions and to a poll she created. Obstetricians, anesthesiologists, nurses, and more have weighed in (and sometimes taken the discussion a bit off topic) on VBAC and liability.
