Will a caesarean section now stop me having a vaginal birth in the future?

If you have a caesarean section now, having a vaginal birth in the future is possible but more complicated.

This is important to know if you plan to have more children in a country where planned caesarean section is not possible, safe or easily available and there is less access to obstetric care.
