Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
Currently, we are the only practice in Collier County that offer VBAC (vaginal deliveries after cesarean section) to our eligible patients.
Patient’s are eligible for a VBAC if only one prior uncomplicated c-section was previously performed. Operative Report from your prior cesarean section must be provided (we can request your records from your previous provider). Baby must be estimated less than 9lbs. We do not induce for a VBAC. Repeat c-section will be scheduled on your due date (if you have not gone into labor prior to that).
During labor, continuous monitoring of baby is required with a working IV (intravenous line) to be able to give you fluids and medications. As always, if complications arise to you or your child, performing a repeat c-section will be at the discretion of the doctor that is present at the time of delivery.
