My first & second births were straight forward, natural, gas & air only. First was 14 hours, 45 minutes pushing - did have grade 2 meconium & some heartrate dips but I had a really supportive m/w that allowed me to move around whilst keeping the monitors on me.
My second, my waters had broken 42 hours before labour started - 6 hours before I was going to be induced. 2 hour labour with 1 push. Perfect birth.
My third is where it went wrong. I got to 5cm, labour was stalling (never happened before but in hindsight I think i had undiagnosed polyhydramnios) m/w insisted on breaking my water and instant bradycardia. (again supports my theory, i think it may have been a cord prolapse) I was knocked out and baby taken by c-section.
Baby #3 is 14 months & we are considering #4.
What's my chances of having a successful VBAC? & could you please point me towards some studies for risk factors (rupture etc)
