its still early days for me but its starting to play on my mind VBAC or CS!!!
I had a non elective (!!!), non emergency CS with my son....I had Placenta praevia and no choice. He was born at 35 weeks and i had an amazing recovery.
Now baby number 2 is due and i obviously have the choice. I have had 3 MCs so actually getting to this stage is a miracle to me!!!! I have been in a clinical trial on steroids as you can see in my signature....my babies are miracles!!
One consultant i see has said CS...he knows the difficult road i have been down and feels i need to be as safe as poss. The other one i see is pushing for a VBAC (shorter stay she says) Id actually enjoy the 3 day rest
What would you do do you think? Im swaying CS, im not at all adverse to one again but wanting to see other peoples opinions.
Honestly, I would go for the c-section as well. There are risks to both a c-section and a VBAC and I would much rather have a repeat, non-emergency c-section than have one on an urgent basis if the VBAC did not work out. That is just my opinion of course and you really need to go in the direction you are most comfortable with in the end
Well, I'm pro VBAC, even if I couldn't have one myself. I just sincerely dislike c-sections! I had my first c-section after failure to progress during my son's labour. With my 2nd, I wanted a VBAC, but she went into distress at 37 weeks and we needed another EMCS. With my 3rd, I went into labour at 37 weeks and had another EMCS. I never reached any of my elective c-section dates. I prefer it that way! Less terrifying for me.
So normally, I would say VBAC. But in your case, having lost so many babies already, I don't know. It makes it difficult. I do think a c-section in your case could be advisable. Or, if it were me, I'd wanted a VBAC in the hospital, where they can help asap if anything goes wrong.
