Most women who have had a caesarean birth can have a vaginal birth after a caesarean (VBAC) for their next pregnancy. Very few will need a caesarean birth for health reasons.
Not all parents feel comfortable with planning a VBAC. You may have heard that a repeat caesarean is safer or more common. However, both VBAC and planned caesarean may be healthy options depending on your circumstances.
'My Next Birth' assists to inform you about your options and helps you and your maternity care provider make decisions together about planning your next birth after you have had a caesarean. Please see the link below to access the decision tool.
