Well, I feel really in the minority here. My first birth was a natural labor at the hospital with midwives (quite long), 3 to 4 hours of pushing in many positions, culminating with a c-section. (No details because only happy birth stories for pg women!!!) My second was a natural 16 hour labor in and out of the birthing tub, with a great vbac midwife and a great doula. Also culminated in a c-section. Again, details wouldn't be helpful.
Finding someone to attempt a vba2c, with no history of a successful vaginal birth, is surprisingly hard. Plus the aftermaths of the births were stressful for me (in the first one I wasn't able to meet my baby for 9 hours, in the second, for more than 3). So part of me is resigning myself to csection again, this time with a detailed birth plan that would allow me to hold and nurse my baby while being "repaired" and other requests like a pillow and having my arms not strapped down. Part of me is thinking about joining ican and trying to find a situation were a vba2c could occur. I'm really struggling with this. Due to my particular set of circumstances (and because it is quite illegal in my state) a homebirth vba2c is probably not an option. So it will be a hosptial. I wish I could feel more hopeful and positive about my prospects.
