I cannot say what caused the fetal distress in your case, as there are many different causes and this would have depended on the circumstances at the time. You do have a higher chance of having another caesarean, but it can be assessed later in the pregnancy, depending on the size of the baby and the progression of the pregnancy, if it will be possible for you to have a vaginal delivery.
