1 doctor agrees
In brief: Sometimes.
A scar thickness <4.
7 mm should prompt your doctor to recommend a repeat c-section. Frequently, though, that is not the main consideration; other factors determine your likelihood to achieve vaginal delivery after a single prior c-section, such as your weight for height, prior vaginal deliveries, number of fetuses, fibroids, gestational age, labor onset, polyhydramnios, version, presentation etc.
