VBAC after having 1 c section

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I got a question about doing a vbac. With my first one she was breached the whole time and so they scheduled for me to have a c section now my water did brake a few hours before going in for my c section but she still hadn't moved so they just did a regular c section. I'm told they did it the way that I could have a vbac if i wanted to for the next one. Well I'm pregnant again and it's been 4 years since my last c section and I keep going back and forth between having another c section or doing a vbac. I know the baby's head is already down and everything but I just don't know what to do. Do you think I would be able to do a vbac safely this time?

Studies show that VBAC is safe and, since you already know your baby is head down then, yes, I think it is not only safe but that you have a great shot at making it happen!  Just do a lot of research and get really informed.

 

I had 2 VBACs after having a c-section with my first and I'll never forget the sense of wonder after my first VBAC.  I felt like a total rock star!  Not to mention recovery was way easier.

 

Good luck!

If the baby's head is down, that's a great start! It sounds like you can have a successful VBAC and good luck to you.

Go for it, you have nothing to lose by trying your best to labor naturally.
