Posted this before in the VBAC thread - lots of people viewed but no one responded. Trying again here.
During the birth of my son on 1/21/04, I went from a home water birth to the hospital after 2nd stage stalled to an emergency c-sec when his heart rate started to drop. I had been fully dialated for 12 hours (in the hospital for 6) -yow. During the surgury, my vaginal wall ruptured and so inside I have a t insition, outside it's just vertical. As the doc was sewing me up he told me I could never have a vaginal birth, or even labor, again.
He was 9 lbs 11 oz and was prestenting with corner of his head.
Has anyone heard of a VBAC after vaginal rupture? I'm most worried that even thou the rerupture rate is 7%, no provider would work with me due to mall practice risk. I'd also love to talk with anyone who has experienced the surgery because it's taking me much longer to heal physicaly then the folks I know who had a c-sec w/ no complications.
