I am in the process of writing a protocol for my home birth practice and vbac. In my reading of various sources I have seen mention of history of infection of a previous incision with c-section as well as extension of the incision being cited as reasons to risk out a client for vbac. I haven't been able to find any evidence regarding these findings and increased risk for uterine rupture in labor. Do you know of any such evidence?
