There is about a 1% risk of the scar rupturing if you have a normal birth after caesarean. Whether it is advisable in your case would depend largely on the size of the baby close to term and whether there are any other complications in the pregnancy.

It is possible to give vaginal birth after having a previous ceaserian, but there are some risks involved. Your health and previous c/sec incision would have to be evaluated properly by a gynae beforehand to determine whether you' d be legible for natural birth. Do some research on google - its called a VBAC (vaginal birth after ceaserian).
Hope you' ll find the answers you need.
Good luck.
