In brief: NO C-section, needed
You have 'a proven pelvis' meaning you are capable of delivering a vaginal delivery, again.
You deserve a trial of labor and when pushing you need perineal massage to stretch the 'outer vaginal' tissue as the baby's head crowns & delivers. Hopefully you will not need another episiotomy. Hope all goes well!
