I've heard that if a woman/mother, for whatever reason, has a caesarean section (c-section), all the subsequent births thereafter most likely will be done via a c-section. Is this true? Why or why not? (Of course I know you can still deliver vaginally, but that many OBGYNs will opt for c-section).
I've heard that c-sections are on the rise because they tend to do c-sections just based on the fact that the mother had a previous c-section (even if this particular birth or pregnancy had no risks to the baby or mother)... But this has not always been the case. So what are the medical reasons for the uptick in c-sections? (If we are to assume that hospitals are not in it for the money momentarily). Does having a c-section impose an added risk on following births? What are they?
Why are obgyn's hesitant to do VBAC births?
