VBAC after 2 C/S's
Normal child birth has always been a dream of mine. We live in a small town and as a result of the increased risk of the baby being born with complications after having almost cronic urinary tract infection we decided to have a c-section in one of the bigger cities, who have better emergency facilities.

Now we are thinking of baby nr 3. And I am wondering if a VBAC would be an option. My gynie said it is a bit risky to do a VBAC after 2 C-sections. What is your opinion? I have had no complication with the C-sections.

There is a risk of rupture of the uterus after even one caesarean. While ther is not a lot of information on VBAC after two caesareans, the risks are at least 0.5 - 1%. I would not recommend it.
