    If you are not induced the risk of rupture is much less than 1%. The risk is 7/10,000. That is less than 0.1%. Many ladies have a home birth after a c-sec and get along just fine. Find another doctor who knows the real risks of rupture.

    If your scar from your first c-section is properly healed, and after 5 years it should be, then the risk of uterine rupture is about 1%. I had a c-section with my first child and have had to vaginal births since then, and am planning on having a third in June. You should ask your doctor specifically why he feels it is inadvisable and maybe get a second opinion.

    Most doctors don't advise doing a vaginal delivery after a c section, it's not safe at all, as well as many doctors don't have insurance to cover that specific procedure because it cost them a lot more and there's so many risk.

    I'm having my second csection in a week as well and i'm perfectly happy and comfortable with my doctors decision.
