Duration: 42 seconds

If you've had a caesarean section, it doesn't necessarily mean that you need to have a caesarean section with births down the road.

Indeed, many women do very well and have chosen right to have what we call a VBAC, a vaginal birth after caesarean section. Their success rate can be as high as 80 percent in some settings.

This needs to be discussed quite carefully with your healthcare provider, reviewing all the pros and cons of vaginal birth and caesarean section to ultimately arrive at a decision that is right for you and that you feel safe with.

If you have questions about a vaginal birth after a caesarean section, contact a local pregnancy provider.
