The 5 minute Apgar score was < = 6 in 91% and the 10 minute was <= 6 in 86%. 17 women presented to L+D with a nonreassuring pattern. <B>Nine attempts at VBAC led to a uterine rupture, 7 of which were either inductions or augmentations against an unfavorable cervix</B>. 45% of deliveries were associated with MSAF. there were 3 shoulder dystocias and 4 infants with group B strep.
