Are you in the US? Your best bet is to sit down with your doctor or mid-wife and find out what that means. Learn as much as you can about your chances. Also, get a second opinion with a different doctor or midwife. I had a VBAC with a midwife after my c section. I did not have what you have though. Midwifes have a higher rate of VBAC success. In the US, many states are out lawing VBACS, so you would need to find out what the rules are in your area. Best way to find out, is to call the labor and delivery section wherever you live, and speak with the nurses. If you do not know any midwives, they can usually give you names of ones that have access to the hospital. I had my second in the hospital with the VBAC, I would not chance having her at home due to potential complications of uteran rupture.
