I haven't searched the rate of successful vbac for every New South Wales hospital but the ones I have looked at seem to sit between 10 - 15% and the two vbacs I have been hired for in the past both ended in repeat caesareans.
Tomorrow's meeting holds a few critical questions: do I tell them the truth about their chances and potentially discourage them from the get go? maybe I should gloss over the statistics? will they ask about my history with vbac and if they do will they see it as a reflection of the system or of me? will the drive there be the best case scenario (a half hour) or worst case scenario? (an hour) will they hire me or will I be passed over for someone more trendy/ experienced/ better at sales/ more local?
