It is possible to deliver vaginally with subsequent children once you have already given birth by cesarean, or C-section, but it is a decision that has to be carefully considered by the individual and her provider, says Dr. Angela Jones, a New Jersey-based obstetrician-gynecologist. "Discussing the reason for the initial C-section becomes important as such can be somewhat predictive of the likelihood of success for an attempted vaginal delivery after a C-section," says Jones. Possible concerns and complications may include a breech presentation or multiple gestation or even an arrest disorder — a situation in which the progress of delivery stops completely — that may lead to a C-section the second time around.
