VBAC Education Project

This course has been made available because Nicette Jukelevics is on a mission. Facts and information about VBACs has been confusing, misleading, and not easily accessible. All of the tools, and handouts here are freely reproducible through a Creative Commons licensing. All that is asked is that you give full credit to Nicette as the author and producer of all the materials. Use different modules for individual courses you want to teach. Use all of them, Study, and share. The goal is for these materials to get into more hands.
