In a recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, Canadian researchers analyzed childbirths throughout the country and determined women undergoing a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) are at increased risk of death or medical complications. The data showed that rates of maternal death were low overall, but significantly higher for women who attempted vaginal birth after undergoing a C-section in a prior delivery. Complications were less common in women who elected a repeat C-section delivery. Additionally, VBAC deliveries resulted in higher rates of complications for the infants, according to the study. Researchers concluded that their findings highlight the importance of screening for women who want to attempt a vaginal delivery after previously having a C-section.
