Truly it really depends on where you are, how long it has been since surgery, how you have healed. I had a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) but the doctors and midwives had to make sure I was healthy enough for it. The longer you wait before getting pregnant between a c section and your next child, potentially your risk goes down for such things as a uterine rupture. Also, location, location, location. In the states, many areas will not perform VBAC's due to fear of complications, and insurance bullshit. The best thing to do, is talk with your doctor or midwife about your concerns. They are the ones that can tell you if 1. They will try, and 2. if your body is ready to do it.
