You will learn about the basic issues surrounding VBAC plus answers to common questions such as, "Am I a good candidate for a VBAC?" and "How can I maximize my chances of having a vaginal birth next time around?" We will also discuss one of the most important but often overlooked issues while planning a VBAC: the father’s role in preventing a cesarean.
