Need some advice for my SIL on a VBAC

Yesterday we found out that my husband's little sister (18yrs) is going to have her second child. She, like myself had to have a c-section but unlike me it was due to the fact that her hips were too small and she couldn't push out the baby. I on the other hand had mine due to my son choking, but thats besides the point.
Anyway she asked me if she might be able to have a VBAC, she informed me that last time she was told that she is most likely to have to continue to get c-sections. I know there are complications with them and most doctors try to avoid them ( at least in my area), any advice for her will be really comforting. I told her to talk to her doctor when she gets a chance, but my opinion is that she will most likely be getting another c-section at least there is a good 85% chance she will. Thank you

Unless the baby is too big or there are other complications then they should give her a choice. If you had one c-sec it is normally up to you how you want the second one to go. There is a chance that the scar area could rupture and cause lots of bleeding if she does it vaginal. I think those chances are very small though, 2%, but its still a worry.
