Planned Caesarean delivery can be the safest option for women who have had a Caesarean in the past, according to new research in PLoS Medicine. Attempting a vaginal birth was linked with a small but increased chance of complications for mother and baby compared with repeat Caesareans.
The findings come from more than 74,000 births in Scotland.
Experts say mums-to-be should be offered a choice of how to deliver – natural or Caesarean – when possible.
