Nearly two-thirds of women who had a cesarean delivery for their first child were successful when they attempted a natural birth for their second baby, British researchers found.
The study, published Nov. 20 in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, used data on almost 144,000 British women who had their first baby by C-section between 2004 and 2011. The researchers found that 52 percent of them attempted a vaginal birth for their second baby.
"This study shows encouraging results with the majority of women who attempted a natural delivery after a primary C-section being successful," journal deputy editor John Thorp said in a journal news release.
Encouraging news for sure!
