Our expert says:
I don't think that the risks or success of VBAC varies from country to country. Overall the success rate is about 40%, meaning that there is a 60% chance of ending up with an emergency caesarean in labour.
I can't give you a SA website to look at. However, I do know that most private gynaecologists do not do VBACS. The reason for this is that, because of the risks, there should really be a doctor with the patient throughout the labour, and this is not possible with private doctors. In state hospitals, there are junior doctors in the labour ward all the time, so it is more commonly done here.
