Quoting Baby Brain:" O Wow! I havnt heard that its safer to have VBAC before a repeat Cesarian! Thats AWESOME to hear! Luckily ... [snip!] ... care is covered but they still PUSH PUSH PUSH for Csections to get us in and out of the Labour rooms as quick as possible :S"
Yes, it was recently amended, sometime this year.
BUT 10 to 1, I highly doubt a lot of obs are going to tell pregnant women that, they want the extra money that c section gives them. Just like they press inductions for before 42wks when the ACOG doesnt even recommend them until you're overdue at 42w1d
