Midwifery Today Issue 57 Theme: Cesarean Prevention 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.
