Vaginal delivery: Vaginal delivery is the most natural way to deliver. However some women have complications or indications where a cesarean may be the safest method of delivery. Discuss this with your doctor early on in your care.

Depends.: Factors that will determine the answer to your question: age, weight/height, prior reproductive history, family planning, personal values/hopes/fears, physician advice and any pregnancy complications. If you only want 1-2 children prelabor cesarean sections and btl may be the safest approach for you. If you want 3 children or more, you should probably try to have vaginal delivery if ok with ob!
