Cesarian Sections

The New England Journal of Medicine reports a study of over 3200 pregnant women who had had a previous Cesarian Section for delivery of their baby.

They requested a trial of labor for the next delivery to see if a second C-Section was needed.

The good news is that 60% were able to deliver through the vagina and did not require a C-Section again.

This study could be important in helping women decide whether to go through a trial of labor even if they had a Cesarian Section previously.
