I noticed no one has answered and I won't be of much assistance because I am going for VBAC myself after a c section for transverse presentation.

I was frightened at first about it because the internet is not your friend when making decisions about pregnancy. I finally voiced it to my doctor and she put my mind at a huge ease! She said i'd be monitored very closely and that there are signs well in advance of something seriously going wrong. I have no choice but to trust her judgement as she feels VBAC is safer in my state than a repeat c section. I did have an induced vaginal birth 1st child tho, so idk if that makes a difference.

Good luck hopefully someone can post something to put your mind at ease soon!

I'm going for a VBAC too - DD was a c-section due to breech positioning. I ended up going into labor on my own, so my midwife says that's a good indicator for a VBAC. This practice won't induce me (risk, I guess?), but if I go into labor on my own they'll encourage the VBAC.
