Ascension Seton Find out all you need to know about cesarean birth and recovery


What You Should Know About C-section and VBAC

Cesareans account for about 32.1% of births in the United States.

The primary cesarean rate (first births) has gone up recently. The repeat cesarean rate has gone down. That means that more people are choosing a vaginal birth for their next pregnancy (VBAC). It's important to know a little something about what to expect in case a cesarean becomes necessary.

What You Should Know About C-section and VBAC

Cesareans account for about 32.1% of births in the United States, so even if it's not the plan for your birth, it's a great idea to get a little information about what to expect in the case of a cesarean birth.  

The primary cesarean rate (first births) has gone up recently. The repeat cesarean rate has gone down. That means that more people are choosing a vaginal birth for their next pregnancy (VBAC).

In this class we will discuss:

  • How to prepare for a planned cesarean birth
  • Benefits and risks of VBAC
  • What to expect in the case of an unplanned or planned cesarean
  • Recovery after a cesarean birth

We look forward to connecting with you.
