Cesareans account for about 32.1% of births in the United States. So even if it’s not the plan for your birth, it’s a great idea to get information about what to expect in case a cesarean birth is necessary.

- Benefits and risks of VBAC
- What to expect in the case of an unplanned or planned cesarean
- Recovery after a cesarean birth
