Who can  have a vaginal delivery after a previous c-section?

VBAC Candidate: Any patient who has a good chance to deliver vaginally (no previa, prior vag del, nl transverse scar, etc) is a good candidate. But, you need to labor in a facility equipped to perform emergent c-sections in case of dehiscence or rupture of the uterus.Your OB can tell you if you're a good candidate, keep you safe in labor, & have the ability to perform a quick "vaginal bypass" if needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Not recommended: Controversy over vaginal birth after c-section has gone from one end of the spectrum (no) to the other (sometimes) .

How can a cystocele be prevented with childbirth? Having a c section?

How can a cystocele be prevented with childbirth? Having a c section?

Less likely.: Pregnancy is a risk factor for pelvic prolapse and incontinence. Most specifically vaginal delivery is a risk factor for these problems. Women who have a c-section versus vaginal delivery are less likely to have a cystocele or other forms of prolapse. There are a lot of pros and cons to this decision. I would recommend discussing these with your doctor to help guide your decision. ...Read more

28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?

28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?

Yes but low risk: Acretta can develop even in women who have never had a c/section. Fortunately this is rare. The risk is much higher if the placenta is covering the prior c/section scar. With the placenta 4cm from the scar, your risk is very low (but not zero). Best wishes! ...Read more

Could uterine scarring from a previous c-section effect future pregnancies?

Absolutely: Make sure you share you history of a c-section with your obstetrician or midwife. It can possibly affect your pregnancy, & will certainly affect your delivery. Many women do deliver after c-section with the right care if the incision was of the right type. It is a good idea to get a copy of the operative report for your c-section so that if you go into labor without warning you will have it. ...Read more

Could the staples from a previous bilateral femoral/ingnal hernia repair with mesh put a baby or placenta at risk during pregnancy?

Could the staples from a previous bilateral femoral/ingnal hernia repair with mesh put a baby or placenta at risk during pregnancy?

Hernia repair: Whether done open or laparoscopic the mesh, tacks, and suture from the hernia repairs will incorporate into your own tissue.

Hi, I had partial hysterectomy due to placenta accreta & previa also adhesions removed operation done abdominal vertical & I'm am bleeding irregularly?

Talk to MD: Frequently, granulation tissue at the vaginal cuff will cause annoying vaginal bleeding. Easily corrected in the office. I know some people refer to a 'partial' hysterectomy incorrectly but if by partial you mean a supracervical or subtotal hyst, then your cervix is still present and that explains the bleeding easier. ...Read more

What's the percentile of succesful vbac after 2 csections. Last csection 2/25/09 I'm due Jan 30th?

VBAC: I don't recommend you consider a VBAC after two c sections. Your risk of uterine rupture, which is now much higher than VBAC after one c section. Your success for VBAC in general is however dependent upon why your first c section was done for. You need to discuss this with your OB, who may not even do VBACs. ...Read more

Normal: Its normal to be afraid of having an operation. While everything has risk, the chance of something bad happening is very, very low. The chance of having some pain relief is overall about 60-70% when considering all patients undergoing laparoscopy for pain. So the odds are in your favor that it will help, and there won't be complications. Hope this helps! ...Read more
