C-section questions/VBAC?


Hello! DH & I are currently expecting baby #3. Our first was born naturally with no complications. She was on the smaller side (5lbs 8 oz) and was born at 37 weeks. Our second was an induction and ended up being a C-section for failure to descend. I also developed a temp during labor so baby was taken to the NICU right after she was born.

This time I was told I could try for a VBAC but that my uterus was tilted and I might just not be able to have larger babies vaginally....? My question is with a "normal" C-section delivery, how long do you usually have to wait to breastfeed and to skin to skin with baby? I really want to be able to hold the baby and try nursing right away and have that immediate time together.

Hi Missy

Ive had 1 planned csection (breech baby) & second was csection as none progressive labour, both times i was able to do skin to skin & breast feeding as soon as i got back to recovery room which was probs about 20-30mins after babies were born..

This baby which is due December will be a planned csection & i intend to skin-skin & breast feed as with my previous :-)

Thanks for the reply! I was assuming that was the case but wasn’t sure.

I’ll be delivering in December as well! Hoping a planned c section goes smoother than my last!

I never wanted to be induced because of intervention.. i did go naturally into labour with baby no2 the evening before my booked csection funnily enough lol but had waters broke etc to move things along & my body wasn’t having any of it! Planned csections are so chilled, no rush or stress & i found recovery is less painful with a planned one im sure yours will be aswell Missy, when is your due date? Mines 17th Dec but being that it’ll be booked for wk 39 baby will be here around the 10th i reckon x
