According to new guidelines released by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, women who had Cesarean sections in the past can give natural birth for their next baby.

Ninety percent of pregnant women who have had a C-section opt for repeat surgery, while vaginal birth after C-section -- known as VBAC -- accounts for only 9 percent of deliveries.

After reaching the peak in the mid-1990s, vaginal birth after C-section has decreased significantly in the U.S., mainly because of restrictions imposed by hospitals to avoid malpractice lawsuits.

Presently, approximately one in three mothers delivers by Cesarean in US, according to the research.

Doctors say natural births after cesarean sections are safe for most women, unless they have a recurring problem.

Doctors said even women who have had two C-sections can be good candidates for natural delivery.

The majority of women can give birth naturally but in several cases, due to medical issues associated with the pregnancy this is not an option, and in those cases a c-section is performed.

The procedure involves the cutting open of the womb and extraction of the baby from the mother’s body, so it is easy to realize why moms to be would rather opt for the natural birthing option.
