i had to have an emergency c-section after 23 hours of labour, and would like to try to have a natural birth the next time i have a baby but i heard it was dangerous and some doctors wont let you. Has any moms had a natural birth after a c-section?

Depends on the reason for the c-section. The risk of placental rupture in a VBAC is less than 1% in most cases. It's very safe.
