“She believed she could. So, she did.”
Many women believe that the only way to have their child after undergoing a Caesarean section is another Caesarean section. This is not true in all cases. Studies show that about 60 to 80% of women who attempted a trial labour after Caesarean section (TOLAC) had successful normal deliveries. VBAC or Vaginal Birth after Caesarean is a formidable mode of birthing for women with uncomplicated pregnancies.
What is VBAC?
VBAC is a term used for having a normal vaginal birth after having undergone a Caesarean section previously. It is an achievable task and depends on several factors.
Most women fear for the safety of themselves and their babies. VBAC is a safe means of birthing in the absence of underlying complications. All you need is an optimal environment with the right guidance and support.
Undergoing a C-section can be a pretty traumatizing experience for some women as it paralyzes them into a singular position and their choices and wishes aren’t well respected.
