I was just wondering if you guys could give me some insight on this. I had an emergency c-section in 2007 to deliver my twins. I was given a low-transverse incision, which healed just fine. Fast forward to now: I am trying to conceive #4 (I also have a 4 year old who was born vaginally.) and really, really want a VBAC this time. I am also debating having a homebirth, but I'm not 100% sure on that one yet. I spoke with a midwife who does home VBACs, and she advised me to get my surgery report and see how they stitched me back up. I discovered that I was closed up with a single suture, using chromic. I have read a lot about the debate over the safety of having a VBAC when they have sewed you up using this type of closure, and this material. The midwife told me that it really doesn't matter a great deal, that what matters more is that I had the low-transverse incision, and that it's been over 3 years since the c-section, but I guess I'm a little scared. So do you think this really matters? Should I go ahead and attempt a VBAC?
