Vaginal Birth After C-Section

Ok so this is my second pregnancy. The first birth went very badly for me. Long story short, my at the time unborn baby and I almost died. Ended up with an Emergency C-Section. Now that I'm pregnant again my question is will I have to have a C-Section this time or is a Vaginal Birth possible??? Even if it's possible, would it be reccomened?? Safe?? Should I just stick with the C-Section??  HELP!!!
