Re: What questions would you ask?
I would ask how they feel about VBACs and what their success rate is with them, for starters. After that you can get the details. I'd also ask if they could review your first delivery and find out the indication in the notes for the c-section (unless it's something like breech that you are sure about), and what kind of stitching you had, etc. Basically, what did the doctor put in the notes that might affect how this doctor feels about it (if it's someone different). Also, ask them what they think the biggest risks of VBAC are and what the risk of rupture is. If they say anything more than .5-2% (for classical incision), you know that they are inflating the risks and may not be supportive.
