It is possible: Determining whether you are an appropriate candidate for VBAC includes reviewing your obstetrical history, taking a close look at your labor progression and why a cesarean was indicated for your previous deliveries. While it is now acceptable to VBAC after 2 prior c-sections, your doctor can help determine your percentage of success for VBAC. It is your doctor's desire to keep your delivery safe.
