My SIL had a c-section 9 yrs ago because her son was breech and had a prolapsed cord. She's had two successful VBAC's and is expecting again this summer (it will be 5 yrs since her last birth). She keeps talking about how she is super high risk and is worried about uterine rupture so she needs a fancy hospital, etc and I think she's over-reacting a bit. Does anyone know if the risk of uterine rupture decreases over time? Any one have good articles/ books that talk about how safe VBAC's actually are? I've read a few over the years but can't seem to put my finger on anything at the moment. She's overseas right now but will back in the US for the birth and keeps acting like she'll have trouble finding a doctor that will do the VBAC since she's so "high risk." Is that really so? I feel like her reaction might be a bit exaggerated.
I've had my babies with midwives at a birthing center so my experience has been very different. I don't want to come off too strongly since my view in birthing is a bit different that hers but I also don't want her to have a bad experience and/or be forced into a c-section for some silly reason.
