Risks of Secondary C-Sections

One of my biggest pet peeves is how women who want to attempt a vbac are made to feel like they are putting themselves and their unborn child at such high risks but no one ever discusses the risks of repeated c-sections with them. This article discussed in great detail the risks of repeated c-sections an also discusses the true risk of uterine rupture in vbac as well as in a primary vaginal birth. The risk of uterine rupture exists even in a vaginal birth with no history of c-section but no one ever tells the vbac mom that. Check out the article and I would love to know your thoughts.
