Abstract

In pregnant women with two past caesarean sections where clinical indications for elective delivery are evident an elective repeat caesarean section is warranted. Although some women with two past uterine scars are suitable for a trial of scar, it is not offered due to an over exaggeration of perceived risks and the inability to deal with a failed trial of scar in a society where only the benefits of caesarean section are deep rooted. There is evidence to support that VBAC-2 has a favorable outcome in a subset of carefully selected well informed women.
