In brief: Depends

If you had a low transverse c-section, VBAC can be appropriate, and the risk of uterine rupture is low.
Be sure to speak with your OB to determine which option is best for you. Hope this helps!

In brief: Not much else

The risk of rupture is not common but is probably the likely risk with a second C section.
The decision should be made by the OB considering your risks at and around delivery.
