I was hoping for a vbac after emcs for pre-e last time but after several trips to hospital with high bp I ended out with an elcs at short notice. I do feel like I've missed out as never experienced a contraction, but hey ho it obviously wasn't meant to be and how can I complain when I have 2 beautiful girlies to show for it!

Right after I had Sophia I thought I would go for a VBAC but I don't think it's worth the risk. I understand there are risks with everything, but don't think it's for me. I also don't think any hospitals around me will do them.

I like my perfectly intact vag.

I had an induction with painful pitocin induced contractions, dilated to 8cm then LO heart rate started dropping so off to emcs.

If I am lucky enough to get preggo again, I will definitely go for a VBAC only because I would like to avoid surgery if possible.

Ive had 2 emergency sections now. I tried for a VBAC after first section but exactly the same problem happened. I cant dilate beyond 1cm and babies got in massive distress each time. Im not planning anymore but if I get pregnant again I would definitely plan a section. Because of how traumatic my first birth was I became very set on having a vbac, because that then didnt happen I felt like a double failure- I wouldnt want to go through those feelings again, so aside from the fact that medically I should have a section emotionally it would be better as well.

Ooh I think about this a lot!

I had an elective for breech so also had no contractions etc... I had planned a hypnobirthing water birth when we found out he was breech at 37 weeks. I was deverstated.

My experience was great though apart from a few niggles (they took my lo and hubby away more or less straght after he was born) we were apart for best part of an hour after his birth which I strongly disagree with.
Apart from that I recovered quickly and its left we wondering if I should do it again..........

The other part of me so wants the water birth and to actually birth my child. When I watch OBEM its the natural births that really get me crying the c section ones leave me a little cold xx

I had an EMCS with LO and I will be going for an elective next time

I know the risks are tiny of rupture etc but I have health anxiety so for me they are terrifying.

I did labour halfway though before I got my EMCS as they didn't believe I was in labour because it was in my back. That's enough for me, I do feel a bit cheated but it is what it is and I can't go back and undo how LO was born so section all the way now

I'd love to have a home birth.. But the midwifes say my pelvis was too narrow for a babies head to get through without any complications. Sophie got totally stuck, and had to be pushed and wriggled loose during my EMCS..

So I guess it'll turn out as an elective!

I think about this lots. Lo was elcs as discovered she was breech at 37+ weeks. I never experienced labour so feel like I missed out, esp when other mums ask how my labour was, I feel a bit like a fraud! (even though I'm a huge needlephobe and generally squeamish, so cs was actually extremely terrifying for me, even though it was straight forward). So that pushes me to vbac. But then, what if I rip etc, or end up with emcs. I already have csection overhang so I kind of feel my compensation for that is to be intact down there iykwim. Also I read an article saying in vbac you are slightly more likely to have a stillbirth than if you had csection. Only a small risk, but even so. Argghhh I don't know!! x
