Our practice offers VBAC services to patients who meet a strict set of safety criteria. The decision to attempt VBAC should be made after thorough counseling and education. VBAC is generally safe; however, VBAC is associated with an increased risk of uterine rupture, which often results in fetal brain injury or death.
In order to attempt VBAC at Premier Ob/Gyn of Southern Nevada,
- The patient must have had at least one prior vaginal delivery and no more than one prior C-section with a suitable type of uterine scar (prior operative report must be made available to review the surgical details).
- The patient must not have had prior fibroid surgery or any surgery involving the fundus of the uterus.
- The fetus must be in a normal vertex position (i.e., breech VBAC is not allowed)
- The patient must agree to intravenous access, epidural regional block in case of emergency, and advanced fetal monitoring.
- The patient must agree to deliver at St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena Campus.
