It is definitely less recovery time and not a major surgery. I wouldn't be scared, especially if there has been enough time since your last lo was born.

Hey I'm on my second pregnancy.  I had a emergency c section on my first. I hoping to have a vaginal  birth this time around.  
I hope I can because I think the recovery is quicker and that's what I need with a toddler  running around.  
If you feel a c section would suit you better this time I think you should  have one.
Do you have to decide now or can you take a few weeks to think and then decide?
I set the date for oct 21 but I'm still thinking my daughter is 4 and she was emergency
Yea my first was emergency.. she is 4 now and my husband  is helping alot I'm due next month
A friend of mine had a vbac home birth with her son. You can do it, ladies!

My first was emergency csection then I had my second 7 years later vbac all natural. You have to trust your body :) hope all goes well.

Did you ask the doc? Who did your first c-section. There will be notes in your file if there are any concerns.
