ST. LOUIS – In the past, it was assumed that once a woman gave birth by C-section, all of her later deliveries have to be by C-section as well. That may not be the case anymore.
SLUCare OB-GYN Dr. Amy Ravin has the details.
One third of deliveries in Missouri are by C-section. This is right on target with the national rate.
Ravin said a vaginal delivery after having a C-section delivery can happen safely. The success rate of this is between 60 and 70 percent of all cases.
