Obstetrics - Labor and Delivery - Vaginal Birth after C-Section (VBAC)

Vaginal Birth after a previous C-Section (VBAC)

If you previously gave birth to a child by cesarean section (C-section), there is a good chance you will be able to deliver your next child vaginally. This is called avaginal birth after a cesarean section, or VBAC. Your health care provider may encourage you to try a vaginal birth. Labor and vaginal delivery are generally safer for you than the surgery required for a C-section.
