What is the risk of trying for a normal delivery after a Caesarean (vaginal birth after Caesarean-VBAC)?

The risk, assuming that your obstetician has checked your records to make sure that there is no strong reason why you need a repeat Caesarean, is around 0.5% (1 in 200)of the old Caesarean scar on the womb rupturing when you''re in labour. So if you experience heavy bleeding, severe constant pain or the baby''s heart rate trace becomes abnormal, you will normally have a Caesarean straight away. The good news is that over 70% of women trying for a vaginal delivery after Caesarean are successful!
