  • Vbacs give women that didn't have a chance to have a vaginal delivery possible and I think its great that SOME doctors offer this, however you have to weigh the risks with the benefit. I wouldn't attempt one myself If i new I wanted more children, because the simple fact is you do have a small chance of it causing you to tear and be unable to have more children. I think just having the baby is a blessing enough, and it shouldn't matter how the baby is brought into the world providing mom and baby is both healthy. I would say for your 5th child try a Vbac if something should happen, at least than you have all your babies done and over with. But this is a personal choice, and should be made with education on the matter behind it.
