Sometimes severe injury or death can result when a vaginal delivery is attempted after a previous child was delivered by cesarean section. Frequently, neither of the parents were told of the risks involved and in many of these deliveries the hospital failed to have the required resources available to assure a safe delivery if the foreseeable complications arise. What follows is an excerpt from the ICSI Guidelines on VBAC (Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI). Management of labor. Bloomington (MN): Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI); 2009 May). It is provided here for the reader's information related to this issue.
If you or a loved one has suffered a severe injury or death as a result of a failure to inform of the risks of VBAC or a failure to provide proper care for labor and delivery, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
