Top VBAC Specialist in Newbury Park

If you are looking for a VBAC specialist in Newbury Park, you can count on Dr. Ronald E. de la Peña to provide you with exceptional specialized care and advice.

If you are pregnant again and your last baby was delivered via cesarean (C-section), then you may have wondered if it’s possible to have a vaginal birth after a C-section (VBAC). While a vaginal birth after a C-section is possible for many women, there are several factors to consider beforehand with your doctor to determine if it’s right for you.

Safety for you and your child should always be the number one priority. This is mentioned because a VBAC isn’t the safest option for every woman. For example, if you are trying to have a vaginal birth and you are at high risk, then it can put you and your baby at risk. Therefore, it is always best to speak to your doctor.

Why Are VBACs Done?

Vaginal births after a C-section are preferred for a number of reasons, including:

  • Avoid the potential risks of multiple cesarean deliveries if you plan to have future pregnancies, such as placenta previa or placenta accreta.
  • When a mother has a successful VBAC, it lowers the risk of surgical complications that may be necessary due to excessive bleeding, infection, or blood clotting.
  • With a VBAC, you will have a shorter recovery time as opposed to having a cesarean delivery.
  • For some people, it is important for them to experience a vaginal delivery if they are able to.
