Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery Topic Guide
Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery (VBAC): Vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC) is when a woman has had a cesarean delivery (C-section) before, and she delivers the next baby vaginally. If a woman and her doctor decide a VBAC is an option, she will have a "trial of labor," with the goal of vaginal childbirth. Despite the trial, many women still need another C-section.
Postpartum Perineal Care The perineum is between the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder, and the anus. In women, the perineum includes the vaginal opening.
