Next birth after Caesarean

For pregnant women who have experienced a caesarean section for a previous birth, they may be considering the best birth option for their current pregnancy. At John Hunter Hospital, we acknowledge that a vaginal birth after a previous caesarean section is often a suitable and safe option for the majority of women. Your midwife will discuss this with you at your first booking visit.

At JHH, we offer free education sessions to help the woman and her partner to further explore their birth options and assist their decision making. In these education sessions the woman will also discover strategies to optimise the birth experience regardless of her birth intention.
