Depends on situation: If your initial cs was due to big baby/small pelvis & you face the same with the next delivery a vbac may be unwise.If the initial cs was for breach or monitor irregularities & your pelvis is considered adequate by the ob, a vbac may be a reasonable choice. Discuss this with the OB & see what what your options are.
