normal birth after operation

hi doc,

I gave birth in Nov 2005 via operation. I am now expeting another baby in September. I want to know if it is risky for me to go the normal way. Am i allowed to use epidural or any other pain relief?

thank you,

You could have a normal birth, but this depends on a number of factors, such as the size of the baby, the reason for the caesarean, etc. There is no reason why you can't have an epidural.
