Choosing a vaginal birth after you’ve had a C-section (VBAC) can be dangerous, as you may ending up losing your life during delivery.

While only 0.5 per cent women risk suffering a uterine rupture — a tear forming at the site of your previous C-section — they may require a hysterectomy to stop the massive bleeding. Your surrounding organs, such as the bladder, also have a higher risk of getting injured in a VBAC.
