Just wondering cuz ya hear all the time how risky it is to have a VBAC but i've never actually known anyone to have one. When i first told my dr i wanted to try a VBAC she was horrified she tried so hard to talk me out of it and at the time i didn't know homebirth was an option, thought it was only something grandma's did long ago cuz they didn't have a hospital to go to she told me of the "risks" and said she wouldn't recommend it but get this, after we talked awhile she told me SHE actually had a VBAC 8 yrs prior: I said so why wouldn't you recommend it, she told me the risks have gone up since she had hers, yea right, whatever! So after i had my VBAC and the dr was still stitching me up i asked dh if he wanted to try for another: , the dr imediately said "ya know the risk for rupture goes up with every preg". I don't know what her problem was but i just shrugged it off and continued the plan for VBAC #2, i'm not pg yet but hopefully i will be soon and if i do i will be trying for a HVBAC, DH is Totally against it but i have plenty of time to talk to him So back to the original question: Has any of you known of someone that has had a rupture? Isn't the percentage less than 1%? What is the percentage for VBAC #2?
