hi, had a c-section for my ger, and am planning to have a natural vaginal birth should i ever want a second child.
My sister In law had a c-section for the first, and for the second one she tried natural. But she had the same prob as the first time-- cervix didn't dilate-- so she had no choice but to go for c-section the second time.
For her subsequent kids, she had to have c-sections as well. She went to KK, but i'm not sure which doc she saw.
I think most gynaes should be willing to let you try a Vaginal Birth After Caeserian (VBAC) if your first was a c-section. But they may want to rule out certain factors, like overweight baby, maternal diabetes etc, before they let you try for a natural birth.
You can try googling VBAC, and yes, please do tell your gynae on the very first visit that you want a natural birth, and whatever things you want for your pregnancy. Good to see if the doc's opinions match yours before you decide to stick to one.
