I will be trying for a UC again this year (still a loooong ways off!), my last attempt ended with a healthy baby boy, but via CS. I am hoping not to have the same issue twice, and my OB that did my surgery said I could VBAC next time.

Well, it's next time! I would love a UBAC. Anyone here done this? I have read this board for awhile, but I usually I lurk :-) so I known there are UBAC mamas on here! is there anything you would have liked to known then, that you know now?

More later, THANKS

For my last birth, it was a UBAC, but it was also my forth VBAC. My second VBAC was a HBAC with a midwife. I am planning on another UC this December.

I'm a lurker too:) I have had three vbacs with the last two being unassisted. I am 22 weeks pregnant and this one will be unassisted as well. All I can really suggest is to read as much as possible. I have faith that God is in control no matter the outcome. It gives me peace with my decisions.  I love the book Childbirth Without Fear by Grantly Dick-Read. I'm actually going to check it out from the library again. It's a great book. I've also read some midwifery books. Lara Shanley has alot of great info.  Another thing I did with my first ubac was red raspberry leaf tea. I buy mine from the Bulk Herb Store online. It's called mama's brew. With my second ubac I did not drink the tea and could tell the difference with my uterus before, during and after the birth.  I will definately be drinking this soon. Congrats!!

Thanks! great to hear about your awesome births. I will have to try that tea. last time I knew nothing about birth, just knew I didn't want to go to the hospital, KWIM? Knowledge is power!

my first vbac was an UC. my biggest issues were the worries about having a repeat of the problems that caused the c/s the first time. when those problems didn't happen, it was a big relief. also i felt a lot better once i started pushing, simply because i knew that i had gotten past the point i had the c/s in my first labor.

 

we were big on educating ourselves as much as possible. i think "heart and hands" is a great resource if you want that kind of in depth info. and i like ina may gaskin's books too, because they really make you feel like you can birth (and you can!)

 

it was a great birth, all told. really believing in my body's ability to give birth gave me what i needed to make it through the low points!

I've had 2 UBAC's & I'm planning a 3rd. My oldest son was born by cesarean due to ridiculous hospital time limits after my water broke. My 2nd was a land UBAC. My labour didn't start until nearly 90 hours after my water broke & it took another 20 hours for him to be born. My 3rd was a water birth that took less than 5 hours after it started (still took about 14 hours for my labour to start after my water broke, though).

 

I'm not sure whether I'm going to go for water birth again or not. I'm considering a completely solo birth & if it goes as fast as the last one (or as fast as my friend's recent 3rd birth which was a 1 hour labour/unplanned UC) I wouldn't have time to set up a pool.
