Not All Hospitals Are Equipped To Handle Vaginal Births After C-Sections
Somewhere between 60 and 80 percent of women who attempt vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC) have a successful vaginal delivery (as reported by the Mayo Clinic), however many local hospitals do not routinely offer vaginal birth after C-section. This is largely due to a lack of resources to handle an emergency C-section along with the risks should complications arise during vaginal birth after C-section.
The risk of uterine rupture and other complications during vaginal birth after C-section often relates to the type of incision performed during the previous C-section. For example, a T-shaped incision — most common in unplanned or emergency C-sections — generally makes VBAC inadvisable, due to high risk of uterine rupture. If doctors fail to take known risks into account or fail to perform an emergency C-section when complications arise during VBAC, and mother or child suffers serious injury as a result, this may form the basis of a medical malpractice claim in most cases.
