Abstract

Objective: Evaluate tools to help pregnant women with prior cesareans make informed decisions about having trials of labor. Design: Randomized comparative trial. Setting: A research assistant with a laptop met the women in quiet locations at clinics and at health fairs. Participants: Pregnant women (N = 131) who had one prior cesarean and were eligible for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) participated one time between 2005 and 2007. Methods: Women were randomized to receive either an evidence-based, interactive decision aid or two evidence-based educational brochures about cesarean delivery and VBAC. Effect on the decision-making process was assessed before and after the interventions. Results: Compared to baseline, women in both groups felt more informed (F = 23.8, p
