Giving Birth Videos
Normally a VBAC is not recommended if you've had three or more previous cesarean, if you had a previous rupture or if you previously had a classical scar which is a vertical incision on your uterus.
If it is your first cesarean then it is likely to take around five minutes to deliver the baby. If it is a subsequent cesarean then this may take longer as you will have scar tissue from the previous operation.
The ultimate aim of induction is to get your body into labor and there are several ways this may be done. Every woman and her baby are individual and so this process may vary slightly.
An instrumental delivery is a delivery that is carried out by a doctor in a second stage of labor when your cervix is fully dilated. This may be necessary if you have been pushing for a long time and the baby has not been born.
