Anyone know any info on any additional risk factors for VBAC if mom is obese? Would a C-section be safer in this instance? My friend is pregnant and really wanted a VBAC but can't find a doctor or midwife to do one. She has accepted that she's going to have a c-section but recently is second quessing that (she's around 28 weeks, I think). She has had several tests for diabetes (she had GD last pregnancy) and all is normal. Everything in her urine is fine, literally everything is perfect but her OB wants to do weekly ultrasounds and nonstress tests from now until the baby's birth. She thinks it's ridiculous but her mom is telling her that they are just doing that to make sure the baby is OK and there are risks to VBAC, etc. She is obese and has been told it's because of her weight that they are taking so many precautions. Anyone have any info on risk of VBAC vs. C-section, in general and also specifically for someone who is obese? Thanks!
