Summary
  • It used to be that if a woman had one cesarean delivery, she had to deliver all her babies by cesarean. But this is no longer true. With vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), many women can safely deliver babies vaginally after they have had cesareans. This book can help you can decide what you want and show you how to get it. It is written by an experienced health journalist who has had both cesarean and VBAC deliveries. Neither for or against VBACs, she seeks to educate
  • women about the important issues and choices in the decision. She gives the latest medical information and discusses in simple terms all the procedures, risk factors, and advantages of repeat cesareans and VBACs. In addition to the medical facts, you will find personal stories that address the emotional side of your decision. A variety of women talk about the choices they made, the experiences they had, and which choice they would make next time
