Abstract

Background: Birth is the delivery of a baby at the end of the gestation that can occur naturally and without the need for special technology or can be done by caesarean section. Methods: This descriptive study conducted to evaluate 685 patients admitted to Asalian hospital in Khorramabad (West of Iran) with a history of cesarean delivery who were again pregnant. Findings: The results showed that the highest relative frequency of vaginal delivery (38%) was in women aged 22 to 26 years, also the highest frequency of vaginal delivery (69%) was in women who had one C-section and in women who in their previous cesarean section had Kerr incision compared to women who had a cesarean section with transverse incision (74%). Conclusion: Based on this study, the phrase "once a cesarean, always cesarean" can change to "once a cesarean, often vaginal delivery". Studies show that vaginal delivery after one or even several C-sections normally is relatively safe except in special cases like breech birth.
