Am I likely to be offered a VBA2C or 3rd section?


A little about me..
My first c-section was 9 years ago.. it was an emergency due to pre-e
My second was last Oct, it wasnít an emergency but was classed as urgent as my VBAC wasnít going as planned ( my babies heart rate was dipping and after 15 hours of labour I didnít dilate!)

Do you think Iíll be offered the chance to VBAC? Or is a 3rd section likely due to the factors above and also that my son is almost 9 months so I havenít had much space in between?

I think Iím swaying towards to another c-section purely because Iím anxious after my attempt at a VBAC...

Hiya,

Ive had 2 cesareans as well!
I do believe you are meant to have a 2 year gap before a vbac? Thats what I was told... have you spoken to your midwife? I will be having a 3rd cesarean... I was nervous at first but they dont seem phased at all, a bit like its normal now xx

I am also wondering this, I have had 2 sections so far one emergency as I had pre e and it was a failed induction.. second one I made it to 41 weeks and still wasn't anywhere near going into labour on my own and I didn't know they couldn't break your waters if had a previous section..

I would love to give birth naturally as the 6 weeks waiting yo drive is not an option as I have to drop DD to school and there is no one else to do it.

I'm more just curious if my waters did break on their own would I be ok to give birth naturally.

I'll be asking at my app too x

I'm curious what your midwife and consultant recommend. I think I'd personally sway repeat section due to the gap. During my last pregnancy I was really pro vbac, but resigned to the c-section because I reallllllly didn't want to end up with one of each with the twins/deliver in the operating room. At my repeat c-section, my scar had separated and was a giant, transparent window eek! The really low stats are usually total ruptures so near misses like mine can go unreported. After that experience, I realized why trusting my medical providers' recommendations was a good idea. Moral of the story: feel confident relying on your drs advice!

Ps congrats on the pregnancy! Having 2 so close should be loads of fun!

This is my 3rd pg & having had 2 cesctions previous, neither emergency but in the UK they dont like you to have a natural vaginal delivery after 2cs.. you could always push for one but i think you would need to be highly monitored through labour

I think after your experience with your last one they will likely push for a repeat section lovely and the fact of how close together they were, they like 2 years between.

I had a planned section with my second son, section was booked for my third at 38+5 however my waters broke at 36+5, due to them breaking at 2:30am I was given the choice, do I want to try vbac or go for a section.. I asked to try but by 10:30 nothing had happened and I wasn't contracting anymore so ended with a low grade emcs. x
