Is it possible to have a natural birth for my fourth child?

Is it possible to have a natural birth for my fourth child? I had an emergency c-section for my first (after fully dilating), and a elective c-section for my twins.

Answer: Hi, It is possible but you will have to find a health care professional who is willing to let you try for a vaginal birth. Your risks of complications are the same after one caesarean as it is for two but many doctors are unwilling to let you try. You can enquire through birth centres or an independent midwife should be able to help. Best wishes, Alex
