I hade a C/S before and now I want to have a vaginal birth. Am I too high risk for a midwife?

Midwives regularly care for women who have had one previous C/S. It is necessary to review the report of your surgery in order to help us determine if a vaginal birth is a safe option for you. In many cases women in midwifery care have wonderfully successful VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarian section) deliveries. Your midwife will discuss the risks and benefits to VBAC as supported by medical evidence with you. As there is an increased risk you will be offered a consult with an obstetrician in the prenatal period. It is recommended that women attempt VBAC in the hospital in order to allow for immediate C/S if it is needed.
