Answer: Hello Ashakgratton, it is very hard to answer this question based on the information you have given. For example, if you have an extremely small pelvis, you may well need another caesarean section. However, it is not uncommon for mums having their second baby to have a very successful VBAC. It will help to be well educated and prepared, and have a midwife to support you. Here is some further information: http://childbirthconnection.org/article.asp?ClickedLink=293&ck=10212&area=27 Good luck, Sarah
