ABSTRACT: Once a cesarean, always a cesarean, this statement reflected most of US obstetricians’ management of patients with a prior cesarean delivery. Although attempts at a trial of labor after a cesarean birth (TOLAC) have become accepted practice, the rate of successful vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC), as well as the rate of attempted VBACs, has decreased during the past 10 years. A total of 167 patients were included in this study. The mean age of the patients was 30.12±2.36 years. The mean interpregnancy interval was 1.56±0.45 years. All the patients underwent trial of labor. Sixty-six patients (39.52%) patients were shifted for section due to certain reasons i.e. scar tenderness, fetal distress, malpresentation etc. The rest of the patient were delivered vaginally i.e. 101 patients (60.47%).
