Many women are candidates for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Still, the choice to pursue VBAC or schedule a repeat C-section can be difficult. Avalon Midwives are here to support and guide you on making the decision that is right for you.
Why would a woman consider VBAC?
Compared with having another C-section, a vaginal delivery involves no surgery, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker return to normal daily activities. VBAC might also be appealing if you have an emotional investment in a vaginal delivery or a desire to experience vaginal childbirth.
It's important to consider future pregnancies, too. If you're planning more pregnancies in the future, VBAC might help you avoid the risks of multiple cesarean deliveries, such as bowel or bladder injury and placenta problems.
