Vaginal Birth After Previous Cesarean Delivery
Trial of labor after cesarean section (TOLAC) has fluctuated in acceptance among the medical community. Approximately two thirds of women with a previous cesarean section are candidates for a TOLAC and its use may decrease the cesarean rate in the United States. Overall success rates are estimated to be between 60 and 80 percent with an approximate 1% risk for uterine rupture in women with one previous low transverse cesarean section .
