Abstract

This article examines data from a recent systematic evidence review on term deliveries conducted for the National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality on vaginal birth after caesarean, from a meta-analysis of associated perinatal outcomes, and subsequent publications that meet stringent quality review standards. We present a summary of fetal and neonatal outcomes emphasizing information that clinicians and patients need to make decisions regarding mode of delivery after prior cesarean and look for areas where future studies may provide important insights.
