Can Childbirth Be Normal After A Cesarean Section?
My first child was born normally, my second child was SC due to breech position. There was trauma after SC, and babyblues were rather severe. Want to get pregnant again and give birth normally. Can it?
Good evening, thanks for the question
After undergoing labor through the caesarean section and then getting pregnant again, then you have the option to choose the method of spontaneous labor in the current pregnancy or what is called vaginal delivery after caesarean (VBAC). However, it should be noted that not all women meet the requirements to be able to try VBAC, for example in a cesarean section that is quite heavy, a high cesarean incision, a history of uterine tears, twin pregnancy, or a history of uterine myoma surgery.
The likelihood of VBAC success will be higher, for example in a single pregnancy with a low transverse cesarean incision, previous history of VBAC, does not have conditions that complicate the normal delivery process such as placenta previa, and so forth.
In general the success rate of pregnant women planning a VBAC is between 60-80%. Therefore a detailed evaluation is needed in such cases to minimize the risk of childbirth with complications. Carry out further consultation with your obstetrician for this VBAC plan because the doctor needs to assess your pregnancy condition and all the risks.
That's all, hope you can help.
