Hi! I am a mom of one, had an unnecceasarian in Dec 2009, gastric bypass 2011 - lost more than 100 lbs! - had a tummy tuck Dec 2011.


I didn't think I would be in a place to have more kids for many years... but, surprise! I am now in a loving relationship of two years, and we are about to try for another baby.


I don't care about looks, per se, but am trying to find advice/input from any women who have had a tummy tuck, and then a successful VBAC :) I am terrified of being told I am not a VBAC candidate because I have the big scar or something.....

I would meet with a local midwife and ask.  They usually do free consultations, and that specific vbac question is betond my expertise, though my friend with a vertical cs scar has a vbac so a tummy tuck seems unlikely to cause issues, on the surface of the matter.  :)
