Cesarean Prevention and VBAC

  "A VBAC Primer: Technical Issues for Midwives" by Heidi Rinehart, MD, gives the basics of C-sections and VBACs, including types of incisions, types of closures, risks and contraindications for VBAC. It also includes a sample informed consent form and a list of references.

  In "Choosing Cesarean Section" Marsden Wagner, MD tells us that the risk/benefit factors of C-sections depend on the reason for doing them: "Where the baby is not in trouble, the risks to the baby still exist, meaning that the woman who chooses CS puts her baby in unnecessary danger."

  And that's just the beginning! Midwifery Today Issue 57 has more articles on this important topic, including "7 Steps toward Cesarean Prevention" by Judy Edmunds, CPM, "Suturing a Cesarean Wound" by Gretchen Humphries, MS, DVM, "Midwifery Care for the VBAC Woman" by Gloria Lemay, and "Cesarean Birth: What About the Baby?" by Robin Lim, CPM.

  You'll also be able to read articles on subjects such as Cytotec, fetal positioning, homeopathic medicine and birth in Spain, Mexico and the Yukon.
