Thank you for all the responce its nice to speak to someone because we are not planning to tell everyone if i fell pregnant and this way i can get all the questions off my back. It may sound weard because it's my second child but i have new questions this time around. Like this question, and how long will it take this time around as the first time was not even a month before i was pregnant. (The gyne gave me a answer)
Thanx again

yes it is possible to have natural birth after a C-section. I read an article not too long ago about this. I will try and remember where I saw it and let you know.

Regards,
René

I have also heard that it is possible but it is case specific.

I think that you are making a healthy decision for you and your child by opting for the natural birth.

Good luck

It took me almost two weeks to walk up right after the C-Section and according to people that gave natural birth it's only 2-3 days before you can walk normal. I would rather have pain now and its gone tomorow than sit with the pain for the next 3-4 weeks.

Hi,

It is possible, you just have to find a doc that will do it. Usually they don't want to take the chance. You could read about this on pregnancy dot about dot com.

I would like to give natural birth and would have the first time. I was 5 1/2 cm dilated when they only picked up something was wrong with the baby's heart beat. That was 2 years ago.

I also had a Csection but i cant remember the reasons, my doc has advised a C section again his reason is that he is scared of the scar tearing during labour. I also dont mind im scared of those pains and pushing, ill ratehr take the operation pains later
