Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

In terms of your blood types, there is no issue. The issue usually only arises when YOU are O-negative and HE is O-positive.

In terms of whether or not you are a good candidate for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean section) here is what I would consider (Cesarean Section = C/S):

1. There needs to be at least 18 months between deliveries to consider a VBAC
2. The best candidates for a VBAC include prior C/S for breech or reasons unrelated to a failed labor
3. Consider how many kids you are going to have when making your decision - if this is your last child, then maybe the C/S is safer??
4. The decision making regarding a VBAC has very much to do with why you had a C/S in the first place!

I hope that this helps and good luck!
