Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery (cont.)

Conclusion

Many women who have had a previous cesarean delivery can successfully deliver their next babies vaginally if they:

  • had low-transverse incisions in previous cesarean deliveries
  • are closely monitored by skilled medical staff in a hospital with the capability of performing an emergency cesarean delivery if required
  • are at low risk for uterine rupture.

At this time, a study is being conducted that may help to identify those women with favorable profiles for a successful vaginal birth after a cesarean delivery.
