TOLAC Q & A
What is a TOLAC?
A TOLAC is an attempt to give birth vaginally when your last birth was a C-section. If your TOLAC is successful, it’s called a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).
What are the benefits of vaginal delivery?
Am I a good candidate for TOLAC?
Can I have a TOLAC at home or in a birthing center?
A TOLAC happens in a hospital setting. When you attempt a vaginal birth after a C-section, your risk of complications is higher than it would be if your previous delivery was vaginal, even if you’re a great candidate. For the safety of you and your baby, it’s best to be in a hospital setting where you’ve got immediate access to all emergency services just in case you need them.
A TOLAC can make your dream of a VBAC come true. Schedule your appointment using the online booking tool or by calling Seasons of Life Obstetrics & Gynecology today.
