I am a VBAC momma! My first was a c-section for breech presentation also. Unfortunately for me he ruptured my membranes with his foot and had one leg up and one down- probably one of the worst breech presentations. My OB at the time was frustrated that they didn't catch it, she said they would have attemped an external version had they known he was breech. She also told me she would have done a trial of labor if he had presented in a more favorable position. I guess I can at least know it was pretty neccessary.
My first VBAC turned out to be 9 lb 14 oz with a 15.75 inch head! (40 cm). I got an epidural with him, which was a HUGE mistake. 12 hours of labor and a 2.5 hour pushing stage...not fun. He was breech at term and they did an external version at 37.5 weeks.
Second VBAC was also pretty big at 8 lb 15 oz. SHe was turned by external version at 37.5 weeks. THen I went on to have a med free birth with her. My labor with her was about 3.5- 4 hours.
Third VBAC was also pain med free, but they did do too many interventions. Most were my 'fault' because I allowed myself to be bullied. Which is why I went iwth midwives for my 5th pregnancy. She was the only one to turn on her own with the help of a Webster trained chiropractor and the various breech turning techniques available in the internet. She was 8 lb 4 oz. Once 'real' labor, actual active labor set in, at around 2-2:30, her labor was again about 4 hours.
My 5th pregnancy was an induced VBAC at 24 weeks. THe labor was about 11 hours, but did really get intense until the last 2-3 hours or so. This was the first time I had truly supportive providers. My midwives were awesome! I wish the pregnancy would have had a better outcome.
I would love to have midwives again, but since we moved to AK things are different. We shall see next week what my options are.
