Research Quality

Hello Henci,


This morning I read the following abstract:


The conclusion is different from what I've read so far even in ACOG's recommendation. It reads:


"Among women with one prior caesarean, planned ERC compared with planned VBAC was associated with a lower risk of fetal and infant death or serious infant outcome. The risk of major maternal haemorrhage was reduced with no increase in maternal or perinatal complications to time of hospital discharge. Women, clinicians, and policy makers can use this information to develop health advice and make decisions about care for women who have had a previous caesarean."



I would be very grateful if you could tell me what you think of the quality of this research. I would also be grateful if you could point at what you deem to be quality research on the topic.


Thank you Henci.


All the very best,

I have written a blog post for Science & Sensibility that analyzes this study as well as another one. Here is the link.
