Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Q & A

What are the dangers of having a vaginal childbirth after Caesarean section?

It's possible to still have complications from a VBAC. For instance, you may experience the following during a VBAC:

  • Uterus ruptures where your C-section scar is, which could cause serious blood loss and even deprive your baby of oxygen
  • Still require a C-section after hours of labor
  • Long-term complications or death to your unborn baby

Typically, even though there are some risks of a VBAC, giving birth after a C-section is less risky than having a scheduled C-section.

How does a gynecologist ensure you have a vaginal delivery after Cesarean section?

Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano runs comprehensive diagnostics and gathers information regarding your medical background to detect any issues that could complicate your VBAC. Additionally, Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano may recommend lifestyle changes to reduce any risks associated with your pregnancy.

If you want to try a VBAC, see if you qualify by scheduling an appointment at Her Wellness Health Center by booking online.
