One in every four births in the United States is delivered by Cesarean section, and over one-third of these are repeat operations based on the medical myth that once a woman has a Cesarean delivery, all future deliveries must be handled that way. After years of deliberation, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recently recommended that routine repeat Cesarean sections should no longer be performed, with only a few exceptions. In this handbook, Flamm successfully describes and defends this newly popular concept of vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC). He discusses the subject in depth, using a question-and-answer format which, along with a very complete table of contents, makes this book an easily accessible text for library patrons. Highly recommended.
