To Repeat C-Section or Not to Repeat C-Section? That is the Question

To Repeat C-Section or Not to Repeat C-Section? That is the Question

If you delivered your first born via C-section, are there risks in delivering your second child vaginally vs. repeat C-section. A study out of the University of Aberdeen in the UK suggests there could be. Once a baby is delivered by C-section, a second child delivered vaginally could cause the scar to rupture, potentially leading to HIE, a type of brain injury caused by lack of oxygen. However the researchers suggest that the only consistent difference between repeat C-section (scheduled or unscheduled) and vaginal birth was a slightly elevated risk for hospitalization with asthma in children born by C-section. Though the study suggests that further research needs to be performed to determine long-term outcomes of a repeat C-section vs. a vaginal birth, ultimately the right decision about your birthing method is individualized and should be discussed with your obstetrician.
