Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to investigate decision-making, health locus of control, and birth satisfaction among women who chose to have a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) versus women who had a repeat cesarean section (RCS) births. Subjects included 22 pregnant women at 36 weeks gestation (or greater) who delivered by cesarean section with their last pregnancy. The women were considered to be low risk for this pregnancy. There were no statistically significant differences between the VBAC or RCS groups regarding decision-making, HLOC, and birth satisfaction. Women's perceptions about decision-making were consistent with previous investigations. The primary reason women chose a VBAC delivery was to experience a vaginal delivery. The primary reason women chose an RCS was the fear of labor pain with a failed trial of labor.
