  • YES you can. Lots of doctors don't like to do VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) to begin with, but it's not uncommon nor is it dangerous. If you find a place that will do a water birth, they are many times very open-minded and are open to VBAC.

  • I would talk to your doctor. If there is too much scar tissue, you may have to opt for another C-Section.
