Normal Delivery After Cessarean Section - Advisable Or Not?

Its a frequently asked question. Whether is it possible to undergo normal vaginal delivery after cessarean or not? 

Well. Its very much possible. Its called vbac (vaginal birth after cessarean). If the gap from last cessarean is more than 3 years, if there is adequate pelvis, if there is spontaneous labour and no added complications then one may undergo trial of vaginal delivery. With proper guidance and skilled gynecologist's work upto as high as 30% may deliver normally after cessarean. Ofcourse if not taken care of the mibor details then previous scar may start giving a way. & thats why if you are going for trial of normal delivery after cessarean then it must be with skilled gynecologist. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
