Repeat caesarean section or vaginal birth

In a recent large study from the University of Adelaide, it was found that risks to both baby and mother were significantly lower if a mother has an elective caesarean section after a previous caesarean section compared with a vaginal birth. The risks for serious complications and death for baby was 2.4% for attempted vaginal birth and 0.9% after elective caesaean section. The risks for serious complications and death for mother was also also significant eg the risk of life threatening bleeding was 2.3% after vaginal birth and 0.8% after elective caesaean section.
This is one more study that shows that the idict, "once a caesarean section always a caeasean section" may be the wiser choice.
