Although “once a cesarean always a cesarean section” used to be the rule; some women may choose to attempt a “trial of labor” for a vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC).
At BirthRight we are particularly proud of our conscientious efforts to improve normal delivery rates. As part of that dedicated endeavor we also encourage women who have had one previous cesarean section to try for a normal delivery if they are found to be suitable.
Again the hallmark here is safety first. We have a 45% success rate with our VBACs. Your doctor will review the records of your cesarean section to determine whether or not you may attempt labor.
