What is known about deciding the mode of delivery after cesarean section (CS) is limited. Our
aim was explore women's decision-making process since pregnancy. Constant comparative
analysis was used in the analysis. COREQ checklist was used in reporting. The main theme
was inability of having control. Four categories emerged; reasons for wanting VBAC, VBAC
experiences, reasons for RCS, and RCS experiences. Women did not have an absolute say in
their decisions. RCS experiences were defined as traumatic and VBAC experiences were
defined as achievement that provided strength and pride. Findings contribute to the literature
on increasing the success of VBAC the importance and encouraging healthcare professionals.
