VBAC on the Gold Coast

Yes, You Can Do It!

VBAC on the Gold Coast – Yes, You Can Do It!

There is nothing more fantastic than giving birth naturally. Of course it can be painful too but that quickly passes. The point is that an increasing number of women who give birth to their babies by C-section may think that they are missing out. Caesarean sections can obviously help save lives during emergency situations but there seems to be a growing trend for women to be offered this as a normal birthing option.


Even if you have given birth by C-section to a previous child it does not necessarily mean you will not be able to have a natural vaginal birth for subsequent children. VBAC is available for Gold Coast residents with all the benefits that go along with it.

But what are the chances of VBAC being successful and will it put mother or baby in danger?



Many women can successfully give birth naturally after having one caesarean section. Of course it is difficult to speak about individual cases. It really depends upon the reason that the mother gave birth by C-section in the first place, but there are some very real advantages for mothers who choose a more natural approach for delivering their subsequent children.



Benefits of VBAC

There are numerous benefits of VBAC including:

  • A vaginal birth – although this may include an assisted delivery birth.

  • An increased chance of uncomplicated, natural and normal births in the future.

  • A shorter hospital stay and recovery period.

  • tunities for Mums to Be to explore all of the options. There is no right answer and no wrong answer – but doing things naturally is generally the way to go if at all possible.

  • Less pain in the abdominal area following the birth.

  • No surgery is needed.



Many women who have had two babies by caesarean section will continue with the C-section route for their third, but for those who have had only one c-section delivery there is a very good chance that they will be able to experience a vaginal birth in the future.



VBAC may also not be a wise choice in the case of women who have suffered from a ruptured uterus in labour previously, have a classical incision high in the uterine or has experienced other pregnancy complications which led to the caesarean section in the first place.



If you are interested in VBAC, the Gold Coast is a good place to live with plenty of opportunities for Mums to Be to explore all of the options. There is no right answer and no wrong answer – but doing things naturally is generally the way to go if at all possible.
