What is VBAC?
Vaginal Birth after Cesarean Section, commonly referred to as VBAC, is the process of giving birth vaginally after a previous cesarean delivery. It offers an alternative to repeat cesareans for women who are interested in a vaginal birth. VBAC is a safe and successful option for many women, but it must be carefully considered on a case-by-case basis.
Benefits of VBAC
VBAC can offer several benefits for eligible candidates. These include:
- Lower risks of infection
- Reduced recovery time
- Quicker return to normal activities
- Avoidance of potential complications associated with multiple cesarean sections
- Opportunity for a more natural birthing experience

Not all women are good candidates for a VBAC. Factors that may increase the likelihood of a successful VBAC include:
- Previous successful VBAC
- Low vertical uterine incision in previous cesarean
