Vbac/vba2c support!


Come join me on my crazy journey of my vba2c.

If anyone wants to share their stories of successful vbac or vba2c please do!

If you want encouragement or just want to encourage me, do that too

Hi there!

I'm as yet undecided but my gut feeling is that I want a vba2c.

Both my children got stuck and first ended in EMCS but second was a successful VBAC with episiotomy and forceps. It was a very quick labour though and I ended up losing a lot of blood and was in shock and had a transfusion, so my fears of this baby getting stuck too along with a potentially fast labour is making me wonder if vba2c is the right thing!!

How was your VBAC?

I haven't had a vbac yet, vba2c means I'm trying for a vaginal birth after 2 c-sections... So I think if I understand correctly you are just trying for another vbac because you've only had 1 c-section and 1 vbac right?

Well done on your vbac. If I can encourage you for a minute, I've heard that once you have 1 baby vaginally your next baby should come out much smoother because your body has done it before . My friend tore terribly with her first and it was a very traumatic birth, she was TERRIFIED of a second birth but her second came very quickly and easily and was even larger than her first, he was out in 3 pushes and she just had a small graze that didn't require stitches!

I think it's awesome that you already achieved a vbac, I'm sorry you are so worried about it and I understand that!!

I'm researching doulas currently!

I'm waiting for my first appointment with my new Dr, it's in 2 weeks from Monday! I've also been reading everything I can and watching vba2c you tube videos! Those have been very helpful!

Oh yes thanks for that pink passion, yes it will be another vbac not a vba2c for me hehe!

Also thank you for those words of encouragement, part of me was thinking perhaps now I've had the vbac a natural birth may be easier! Think just that worry that both my babies got stuck haunts me a little. But as I say my gut feeling is that I want a VBAC as I still wouldn't have changed how my sons birth went. I am glad I didn't opt for an ELCS.

So envious of those of you who are able to try! My VBAC failed with DS and I am not allowed to VBA2C with this one. I have accepted my ELCS but still hurts a little.

I legally can and both my OB practice and hospital supports VBACs but I just physically can't. I suffer from insufficient pelvic space. Baby physically can't descend into my pelvis.

X_amour, you possibly are truly someone that can't give birth vaginally but I know the actual percentage of true cpd is very rare and usually the result of a pelvic injury or anomaly!!

I'm so sorry your vbac was not successful with your son! It's good that you tried it. I'm not sure if you are even interested or not because I understand that feeling of "Just can't" physically and emotionally, but if you want watch a few YouTube videos of vba2c. There are so many on there that for whatever reason baby 1 and 2 would not descend into birth canal and they honestly thought they just couldn't birth vaginally but decided anyway to try 3rd time (vba2c) and many were successful! Either way I know you have to do what's best for you!! Good luck and feel free to follow along this journey with us!!
