Vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC)

Depending on your medical circumstances, if you have previously delivered a baby by caesarean section you may have a choice to have a vaginal birth with your next pregnancy.

A VBAC is pretty much the same as any other vaginal birth, with one big exception. When you go into labour, midwives and doctors will monitor you very closely – more closely than if you hadn’t had a previous caesarean.

Some benefits of vaginal births – including VBACs – are:

  • a lower risk of some complications such as infections
  • a shorter recovery time and hospital stay
  • a higher likelihood that you can feed and cuddle your baby straight after birth
  • a lower risk of complications during future pregnancies

About 80% of women who start a VBAC will have a vaginal birth.
