Here in the U.S. the c-section rate is about 25-35% in most hospitals. Some may be lower, but many are actually higher.  The county I live in, that small hospital, has been 6th in the state for being the worst hospital for a number of years in a row. (I live in Indiana). Rates have been up to the 40-45% . Some hospitals in the country are even reporting rates as high as 50% or more. That means 1 of 2 women are being cut open to get their babies out. Unbelievable.

The following are some of the indications for a

Cesarean birth:  

  • Severe fetal distress

  • Abnormal position of the baby and the baby                                                                  will not change or move its position.

  • Abruption of the placenta

  • Placenta previa

  • Toxemia

  • Excessive sized baby (after a failed attempt of a                                                       vaginal delivery)

  • Herpes virus infection of cervix, vaginal, or vulva

  • Prolapsed cord


This is a vaginal birth after having a C-section. You may have had a c-section for a delivery, and the next time you are pregnant, you want to deliver vaginally. This will be a VBAC.

   VBACs are safe and a good option.  Please read more at the link below, and do your research.
