Has anyone ever had a natural birth after having a c-section?

I am trying to decide on a 2nd c-section or to attempt a natural delivery. I need some opinions and stories to help decide if it is too risky or if I am just being paranoid.

  • i did! i had a c/s in june 2007, and in november 2008 i had a natural VBAC! its totally worth it, and the risks are actually LESS with a vbac than with a repeat c/s. check out the group VBAC moms for tons of info and ladies who've been there done that :)

  • My sister had 3 natural births after her c-section. It can be done and I've heard the risks are lower with VBAC than with a repeat c-section too....

  • Generally speaking a repeat cesarean is riskier. I wish Pauline was on, she has had 2 homebirths after 2 cesareans. :) No issues stemming from the 2 previous cesareans, beautiful births as well.

    Go visit :) It's the international cesarean awareness network and find a VBAC group on here.

    Good luck momma! :)
