In brief: VBAC

Some women want to have a repeat c-section and other women want to try to have a vaginal delivery. Whether or not this is a good idea depends on what type of incision was used on the first surgery, why you had the first surgery and the ability of a facility to handle any possible complications that could result from a vbac.

In brief: Risky choice.

Vbac is what you get if your gamble pays off - and you avoid a second cesarean section.
Keep in mind that this gamble risks a ~10-fod higher risk of fetal/neonatal death compared to a scheduled prelabor second c-section and may only be justified if you plan to have many more pregnancies and do not wish the risks of multiple c-sections.
