yes and no. there's no general answer to this.<br>
some do, but it depends on the reason why you had a cesarean before.<br><br>
you could ask here for further information:<br><a href="http://www.bfhd.de/" target="_blank">http://www.bfhd.de/</a><br>

My c-section was doctor-caused.<br><br>
I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, induced at 37 weeks with pitocin; after contracting comfortably all night, a doctor broke my water without telling/asking me first; I was then given an ineffective epidural, and not allowed to get out of bed; it didn't occur to anyone to have me roll over off my back. So, my 8 lb DD got "stuck" against my pelvic bone.<br><br>
I am 100% certain that if I am allowed to manage my own labor next time, ie, not have my water broken without my consent, be allowed to get up and walk around when I am literally begging to do so, I will be able to deliver vaginally.
