Re: VBAC=Induction? WWYD?

Also I wanted to say as long as you and babe are healthy labor as long as possible at home. That way there will be fewer interventions.

There really are more risks in the long run with induction than there are for a VBAC, because often inductions lead to sections and sections are a major surgery. Look into the stats on the risks of sections (this is not a csection hate bit here, I had 2 and know that they are life saving in many instances, but this is addressing csections as a whole). Csections carry many many risks and actually are considered statisically more dangerous than Vbacs..at least as of 3 years ago..I am going to assume the research has not changed too terribly much since then.
