Just wondering if anyone has had this conversation with their health care provided if you've already had a c-section...I really wanted to try a vbac but my Dr. doesn't offer them. Its an automatic c-section after you have one...Im really bummed out about it, anyone else going through this?
hi hun im in 1st tri at the mo, when i seen the midwife i told her about want a vbac , ive had a normal delivery before my c sec. And im going to see my ob on thursday as im lookin at having a waterbirth if all goes well. I am in the uk so things are a bit different but unless there is a medical reason stating its safer for you to have a c-sec, id try for a vbac x
In the US, you will find many doctors take this approach of saying you can't have a VBAC. However, this is illegal for them to do. If you really want to try for a VBAC, I would urge you to go to the ican.com website. This following page in particular might be helpful to you:http://www.ican-online.org/vbac/enfo...an-vbac-primer
You have a right to have a say in your treatment, and how your body is treated. Don't let them dissuade you from something because they don't want to do it.
I have had 3 c-sections. With my first, she was breach. With my second, I had developed a hernia, so it made sense to do a c-section and repair at the same time where they'd give me 4 days in the hospital versus coming back 6 weeks after delivery for an outpatient procedure to fix the hernia and then go home to a 22 month old and 6 week old.
My third child, I wanted to do a VBAC. My doctors were very leery about it. Then 3 weeks before I was to deliver, a woman having a VBAC had her uterine scar rupture in labor and the baby died before they could deliver him (in the hospital where I was to deliver). I was nervous, but still wanted to try it, but under very strict monitoring. Ultimately, she was delivered by section, too as every contraction her heartrate dropped to 60 beats per minute (the chord was looped all around her neck).
So this time after 3 sections, I HAVE to have another one. I don't really care this time. Maybe they can cut out some of the scar tissue left from the first 3!
