Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC)

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recognizes that attempting a vaginal birth after one or two cesarean births is a safe and healthy choice for most mothers and babies. ACOG recommends that mothers who meet certain criteria should be allowed a trial of labor. VBAC is not currently a birth choice at Martha's Vineyard Hospital. The following list includes mainland practitioners and facilities that allow trial of labor after cesarean for qualified candidates.
