Thanks for your query.
Firstly, I would like to know the details of the death of your previous baby.
There are various causes for a stillbirth.
Genetic abnormalities in the baby, autoimmune disorders in the mother, maternal diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cholestasis, jaundice, renal disease etc.
Intra uterine infections.
A traumatic or difficult vaginal delivery is a rare cause in this day and age of medical science.
However, the history is extremely important.
Merely going in for a C section because a previous mishap occurred is not evidence based medicine.
However, all said and done, if you go for a repeat attempt at vaginal delivery, and there are some conditions like a narrow pelvis etc , which could again cause trauma during delivery, then you alone would be solely responsible for the consequences.
Please get back with details of your previous incident so I can opine further.
take care.
