Vbac Delivery Risks

VBAC delivery risks sometimes discourage expectant mothers from having their new baby using this method.

VBAC refers to vaginal birth after cesarean section. It is an option that is sometimes offered to women who have had a cesarean section in the past. If you are interested in doing this, you would have to discuss it with your doctor, who would determine whether this would be a viable option in your case.

Women and doctors like several things about VBAC. For one, there is less risk of infection with this method. Women also have less pain after delivery. With vaginal delivery, the father can play a more active role when their child is being born.

VBAC Delivery Risks: Trial of Labor

Women who decide to do VBAC are usually requested to do a trial of labor. This involves a plan to enter labor with vaginal delivery as your goal. No one knows whether this will actually work until the appointed time comes.

Even though you want to do a vaginal birth, your state at that time may indicate that another cesarean is best for you and your baby, in order to keep you both healthy. If your child shows any signs of distress, the attending physician will opt to do a c-section.

VBAC Delivery Risks: What Can Go Wrong?

The most serous risk to mothers who already have a c-section scar involves the wound. There is a risk that the scar can come open during delivery. This is very grave, although the risk of having it happen is low.

Also, women who spend time in a trial of labor and then find that they have to do a c-section anyway, have a much higher risk of infection than women who just went ahead and had another cesarean.

If your hospital is not equipped to handle rapid cesareans, your doctor will not usually recommend a VBAC for you. Only hospitals that can jump into action if necessary can facilitate this style of delivery.
