I was hoping I could join you all
While I have given birth vaginally, my last baby was a c-section, and it's looking like any more we decide to have will be also. And I really want one more.
I've read through all the posts, and basically I'm just looking for support, and not flames for chosing a repeat section over a VBAC.
My youngest, Elora, was born by emergency c-section at 25 weeks because she was transverse & I had pre-e. They did a classical incision on my uterus to get her out, since she was up so high, and eveything I've read says that VBACs are risky with this kind of incision, on the upper half of the uterus.
After spending almost 9 weeks in the NICU at her bedside, watching her grow & get healthy and hear the talk of bringing her home, Elora got a blood infection and it quickly overtook her little body & she passed away.
I just want a baby I can bring home. I am not willing to risk a rupture. I just want to hold and nurse one more baby.
I am scared to death of another c-section. But I am even more afraid of not having any more children.
