Methods: This study was conducted on women in labour who had history of previous cesarean section and received vaginal birth
in obstetrical department of our hospital from May 2013 to November 2014.
Only about 10% of women who have had a cesarean have a vaginal birth
in a subsequent pregnancy.
After screening the 390 patients with exclusion criteria and counseling for undergoing vaginal birth
following lower segment caesarean section (VBAC), only 100 of the eligible agreed to undergo trial of labour.
KEY WORDS: TOS, vaginal birth
after cesarean delivery, fetal distress, lower segment cesarean section
The overall success rate for vaginal delivery after previous caesarean was highest for Group-1, and lowest for Group-3, suggesting a strong correlation of birth weight with success of vaginal birth
after caesarean section.
Of all pregnancies enlisted for potential vaginal birth
after CS the number of successful VBAC trials was also documented.
Women not suitable for vaginal birth
are those withprevious uterine rupture, previous classical cesarean (vertical scar in uterus) or having three or more previous cesareans.
No one ever told me I could have a vaginal birth
after a previous cesarean surgery.
0087896) PLOS ONE found that there is 26 percent greater risk of putting on unnecessary weight in adulthood that is associated with C-section delivery compared to normal vaginal birth
Objective: To compare successful vaginal birth
after caesarean section (VBAC) and repeat caesarean section (c/section), with respect to maternal and fetal outcome.

NEW ORLEANS--Weight gain between pregnancies decreases the likelihood of a successful vaginal birth
after cesarean section, according to findings from a large population-based retrospective cohort study.
As such it outlines the complete process for eight different birthing plans, including: unmedicated vaginal birth
Planned caesarean section versus vaginal birth
for breech presentation at term: a randomized multicentre trial.
Women in the UK who plan to give birth at home or in a midwifery unit are more likely to have a vaginal birth
with less intervention compared with women who plan to give birth in an obstetric unit, according to a prospective cohort study of 64,538 women giving birth at home, in freestanding midwifery-led units (on a hospital site with an obstetric unit) or obstetric units across the UK from April 2008-April 2010.
