Is VBAC possible after 2 c-sections?Pregnancy Gynaecology
I'm 33 yrs old and going through my 3rd pregnancy. My first pregnancy was twins boys delivered via c-sect as 1 of the twins was in breech position. My 2nd pregnancy was via c-section too. I was told I had to deliver via c-section as my first 2 pregnancies were delivered via c-sect. Is VBAC/delivering normally possible after 2 c-sections, and what are the risks of doing so? Thank you.
Possible is one thing, but the risk of rupture is higher than for one previous CSection. Uterine rupture is generally rare, but unpredictable and catastrophic.
The likelihood of successful VBAC would increase if you were in labour and dilated to a significant degree in the earlier pregnancy.
