I have transferred my care to a midwife/OB practice 3 hours from home and LOVE the midwife I saw the first time around. This time I saw an OB and had a different experience. While i've been told multiple times that I'm a good candidate for a VBAC, SHE said that she thinks I have a 60% chance or lower of having a successful VBAC since I already tried pushing my 7lb 14oz baby the first time around and had no success. I was finally feeling confident and now I don't know what to think. Is she right? I pushed for 3.5 hours after a 4o hour 41 week induction. I had an epidural, an episiotomy, pushed on my back and 3 vacuum attempts. I really thought that Lucy getting stuck was due to the fact that I didn't walk and didn't open up properly. Now I'm just getting closer and today was a big let-down. She said she loves doing VBACs and is more than willing to give it a shot, but I'm not a good candidate. WTH?? Can anyone give me a boost?
