Is a vba2c a common thing now? I keep reading mixed things.
Is anyone from the UK and considering one?

It is becoming more and more accepted as newer guidelines have come out from our country's American college of obstetrics and gynecology association. The guidelines say that there is very little if any increased risk in a vbac vs vba2c. Definitely good to be getting a chance to try!!

I am trying for a second VBAC. My first was a CS (failed induction at 33 weeks for severe pre-e), second was an induced VBAC (at term), hoping for a natural VBAC this time!

Link to my VBAC story in my journal from my second pregnancy

That's interesting that it's not much more risk. I'm not sure what the guidelines are in the uk.

First born was an emergency section due to serious fetal distress. He lifted his chin off his chest at the last minute during pushing and got stuck. :/

DS2 was a VBAC and that's because I REFUSED to let anyone near me with a scalpel again. While I know it was to save the life of my DS1, I wish my first delivery was different. I went into labour at 38+1, had a very quick, drug free 4 hour labour with DS2 barely making it into Labour and Delivery.

DS3 again I knew I wasn't going under the knife. Again labour started at 38+1 weeks, 12 hour drug-free labour (if you don't count the 10 minutes of gas to take the urge of wanting to push) and unassisted.

Will be going the same way again with baby #4. I want my tubes tied but I'm not prepared to have that done at the same time as a section so that will happen when baby is around 6 months.

I'm in the UK and going for a VBA2C. My midwife looked at me as though I had two heads when I told her of my plans but she's very supportive now. The Consultant said it is no more risky than an induced VBAC and they do that all the time. She had to go through all the risks with me but she was very supportive. Just need baby to play ball now and be head down!

Hi DJ.
Did your consultant look at you like you had two heads aswell or was she supportive from the start? Would be great if you can update when the time comes

Hey ,

So I've never gone into labour , ds I was AROM at 40wk and had baby 4.5hr later . DD1 PROM with no contractions at 26+6 then induced labor at 32+3 , failed so had emcs. DD2 was supposed to be a VBAC but at 37 weeks I measured 49 ( yes that's 49 cm! !!!) With a big baby and polyhydramnios so Dr's agreed a section would be better at 38wks. I have a section scheduled for 39wks , but had recently felt that if I went into labour beforehand I'd like to see if I could deliver naturally. My OB felt that I should just have the elcs , family are horrified I'd even consider a natural birth . Hubby is supportive , he'd worry either way tbh as I haemorrhaged last csec. Has anyone successfully vbac'd with a similar obstetric history ?

My only concerns are that DS was only 7lb3 and I was very young and fit , but I had to push for almost two hours . Narrowly escaped forceps and tore quite badly . He was in an awkward position though and I'm trying to hang on to that . Then my hubby is huge and I'm expected to have a big baby . People are using these facts to tell me I'm ridiculous for even contemplating it.

Following with interest. Im currently pregnant with my third and considering a VBA2C, failed induction @ 42 weeks with first baby and he was 10lb, second my body went into labour but they deemed 'no progression' without even checking me and I had my second csection on the date it was planned! Hes just turned one this baby is due in january, decided if my labour starts naturally then ill attempt it, I have a scan at 36 weeks to check babies size. and yep, got looked at like i had 2 heads when i outright said i didnt want the section!
