Women who have previously given birth through cesarean section and choose to try for vaginal delivery during their following pregnancy have the option of having a vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC). Many women can safely attempt a VBAC, but the decision to do so is dependent on a number of variables, including the cause of the prior cesarean delivery and the presence of any risk factors. Women with no other risk factors who have previously undergone a low transverse uterine incision (the most frequent style of incision used during cesarean deliveries) may be ideal candidates for a VBAC. However, women with certain conditions such as placenta previa or a history of uterine rupture are not good candidates for a VBAC. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of a VBAC with your healthcare provider and carefully weigh your options.
