Question: My first pregnancy was ending by caesarean birth, in my second pregnancy what i can do for make the vaginal birth more easy. W. (Lebanon)
Answer: It is a little difficult to give you a specific answer without knowing why you had a caesarean section in the first place. However, it is important to know that the majority of women who have had caesarean section can successfully deliver vaginally next time around. There is nothing that you can do personally to make this more likely. What is important for you is to ensure you have regular antenatal care. Your doctor or midwife will then give you appropriate advice as to the feasibility and suitability of a vaginal birth. Issues that may lead to an advice against a vaginal birth include a very big baby, if the baby is leading with a breech rather than head, baby lying in a transverse position, a low-lying placenta etc. All in all, if everything is normal with your pregnancy and the previous caesarean delivery was uncomplicated, you should expect to be advised to try for a vaginal birth and chances of success are good.
