While I won't be doing much extensive blogging on the reasons we are considering the birth options we are considering until the final decision is made, here is a really well researched, well written article about one of the possibilities. I was greatly encouraged to continue to press on with the prayer for a successful VBAC.
It is a very long article, but well worth the read, in my opinion. If you're looking specifically for safety stats, scroll down to the section labeled "A Competent Midwife" and check out the third paragraph. You'll see how "greatly encouraged" barely describes my thoughts.
