However, continued research found out that indeed, it is possible for the mother to deliver through vaginal birth in other deliveries after a C-section. Recent research has however shown that the mother is much safer if a repeated C-section is carried out than when she opts for a vaginal birth. Vaginal Birth After C-Section (VBAC) Celeste (2010) argues that due to changes in surgical operations and advancement in technology, vaginal birth after a C-section has been made possible in most cases. Statistics indicate that between 60% and 80% cases of VBAC have turned out to be successful without any signs of complications. Whether a VBAC will be successful or not wholly depends on whether a hospital has enough resources in terms of equipment and manpower to handle an emergency C- section in case it fails. ...
