Humm...I don't know, I would limit people just to limit opinions. There are several people who are still anti-VBAC. If you want a natural birth I would labor at home for a long time before you go in. If you go in at less then 6cm you will start the 24hour time limit too early and might end up with another c-sec. You also need to progress at a certain rate or they will section you. They deal with a lot of this in the More BOBB VBAC movie. Just my two cents
