What is VBAC?
VBAC stands for "vaginal birth after cesarean" and refers to giving birth through the vagina after a woman has already had a cesarean section. Vaginal delivery can help avoid complications from surgery and adhesions of intraperitoneal organs, but most importantly, it can have a good effect on the formation of a mother-baby bonding as the baby can be held and breastfed immediately.
