I found this large study which is australian. I can't get the full article so I can't verify if there has 'never' been a uterine rupture in Vic, but it does set out the risks. Which are small

I read the risk of UR after 1 c/s is between 0.1-0.5% depending on the study. Tiny given it's pretty much that for a UR for a vb with no previous c/s.

Tiny risk. A baby dying from this is so small its not even recorded.

I would homebirth twins if all was going well. I would homebirth a breech if all was going well. Placenta previa has different grades, usually with grades 1 and 2 a vaginal birth is still possible, so if my Midwife was happy them I'd be happy to stay home.
But again, so many variables, so long asmy Midwife was okay with a homebirth and I was okay with a homebirth, then that's what I do.
The only things that would stop me, would be if birth was not physically possible (transverse lie, for example), if there was a known medical condition with either myself or my baby that would require medical attention or if there was a real risk of something going pear shaped.
I'm considered "high risk" when it comes to birth centres and hospital funded homebirth programs, but not with Independent Midwives...go figure.

Grr link didn't work.
Study was of 30,000 women who were having second birth after CS.
Risk of rupture was 0.15% in spontaneous labour, 1.91% in spontaneous labour with oxytocin augmentation.
Risk with induction was 0.54% for oxytocin alone, 0.68% for prostaglandin alone and 0.88% when combined.
I wouldn't say the risks are so small they are non recordable (I don't even know what that means lol) but they are small risks.

And I also know due to my profession that a mothers first instinct when something happens is to blame the dr when after an investigation a majority of the time what happened wasn't preventable. Sometimes things just do happen that aren't expected and the outcome most probably wouldn't have been any different had it been managed differently. It's just unfortunate!

I think, from the tone of the article, that the author was actually justifying her own birth choices rather then putting down other peoples choices or experiences. It read to me like an article that's been written after an unpleasant encounter with someone who has totally belittled her births, and yes the wording is unfortunate because it does seem to lash out at everyone making a birthing plan or having a home birth (when I don't think that's what she intended).
This is my first baby, so I have no idea really what to expect when it comes to labour, I do however want to send out a to everyone that had a hard time of it.

You think hospitals are safest, a homebirther thinks their home is safest. Are you going to change your opinion? Is the homebirther? No. So why fight it? The government is doing a fabulous job of taking away peoples personal choice as it is.
