Evidence to Improve Care

Vaginal Birth After Caesarean (VBAC)

A quality standard currently in development




This quality standard addresses care for people who have had a Caesarean birth and are planning their next birth. The quality standard focuses on care for people who are pregnant with one baby who is head-down and at full term.

The Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health and Health Quality Ontario are collaborating on the development of this quality standard.

The work on this quality standard started in February 2016.
