I'm thinking about it. I haven't seen a doctor or anything yet, I've moved out of state since having my last one so I won't be seeing him again. I had a (mostly) natural birth in 2007, C-section in 2009 and repeat C-section in 2011. So..I'm not sure what will happen but I've got VBAC on the brain.
I teach natural childbirth and I've taught/worked with VBAC/HBACs before and have TONS of knowledge and experience, so if you have any questions, are looking for resources, support, etc...please feel free to ask :)
DS1 was born via cesarean. He was a planned homebirth, transferred 105 hours after my water broke.
DS2 was my VBAC - but it was terrible. I had two episiotomies and spent over $1000 in physio later just trying to salvage something of my pelvic floor. That was also a homebirth transfer, mostly due to lack of support from my midwife.
DS3 was born at home in the water. It was amazing and miraculous, and I can't wait to do it all over again.
I will have the same midwives that I used with DS1 and DS3 and hopefully will call them as the baby is sliding out.
I don't know what is going on with me yet, I won't see a doctor until January...but..anyone here have an experience with vba2c?
Are doctors/hospitals whatever, more strict about it being after two? Do I have more a risk?
I posted in a different thread how I've had hard births. My first was vaginal but I had to have pitocin, second was homebirth hospital transfer turned into C-section. Third was sort of planned C-section. My contractions always seem to be disorganized, they go close together, then far apart again, it's so strange. If this happens again, I can't have pitocin again being a previous c-section, right? Am I still a good candidate?
I'm going for my 2nd HBAC! I loved my home birth experience, it was life changing for me (I caught her in the water, everything was peaceful and so different from my cesarean). Now we're just figuring out how we will afford the birth, as this pregnancy was unplanned and we don't have a savings acct ready for the prenatal care and birth!
I don't know anything about c-sections, but that sounds a lot like my first labor. Any chance your babies were posterior? Also could be called "sunny side up" by some people. It's where their head is down, but face is forward instead of backward. It can cause some really irregular contractions.
Hmm, not sure, no one mentioned anything if that was the case.
