Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. Is this even possible?
Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC preparation)
If you’ve already had a cesarean birth (also called c-section), you may be able to have your next baby vaginally. This is called vaginal birth after cesarean (also called VBAC). You may be able to have a VBAC if your pregnancy is healthy and the incision (cut) in your last c-section was low transverse.
What is VBAC?
VBAC is an acronym for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean section.
If I had one previous Cesarean birth, can I have a vaginal delivery when I conceive again?
Women who have had one previous uncomplicated lower segment cesarean section(LSCS) and no other problems in the current pregnancy are suitable candidates for VBAC.
There are, however, several factors to consider:
- The previous cesarean section
- Current pregnancy
- Other medical or surgical problems
Vaginal birth after a C-section still possible!
MALAYSIA – According to the National Health Care Establishments & Work Force Statistics published in 2011, the overall Caesarean section (CS) rate in 2009 was 20.8 per cent of all deliveries. The CS rate was 30.3 per cent in the private sector and 18.1 per cent in the public sector. The overall CS rate in Kuala Lumpur was the highest at 29.5 per cent, compared to 11.5 per cent and 11.6 per cent in Sabah and Kelantan respectively.
The question that everyone who has had a CS asks is how to give birth in the next pregnancy. One could have a vaginal birth or an elective CS.
In order for the obstetrician to provide the appropriate recommendation, he or she considers the reason(s) for the previous CS and what happened, the type of uterine incision made, whether there are any complications in the current pregnancy, and the views of the patient about the previous CS and current pregnancy.
