    Default Has anyone had a successful VBAC after 2 Ceaserians?

    Both pregnancies, i didn't dilate past 3cms... First one ended in an emergency ceaserian after 14 hours as dd's heartbeat was going too slow, and with ds, after 15 hours, just would not dilate... Even tho with both labours I had contractions every 2 mins.. Both times they tried EVERYTHING... and it didn't work... has anyone had this before?

    Have you ever had any procedures done on your cervix?

    Id also be interested to know about anyone who has had a vba2c.

    My csections were for other reasons but I'm hoping for a vbac next time.

    I hope you get the info you're after

    I havent had one but i feel obliged to pass this on....
    A vbac after 2 csecs is dangerous and there are increased risks of something going wrong. A lady in my home town wanted a natural birth after 2 csecs and the doctor said it
    Was too risky. The woman refused o sign the paperwork consenting to a csec, even when she went into labor. Anyway things went pear shaped and the docs had to choose between the bubs life and the mums life. They chose the mum and bub died. She sued, which I found abhorent since it was her fault.

    Not saying you can't have a vbac2, just please listen to your doc. Good luck..

    Don't let people scare you. Anything can happen in any labour. I listened to my doctor and had a perfect, amazing VBA2C.
    Do your research and make your own decision. I did and it was the best decision I've made.
    Happy to answer any questions.

    Would you consider getting hold of your hospital notes and talking to an independent midwife, just to get an opinion?

    Ive had friends who have hba2c (homebirthed) with great success. They found the lack of rushing and not being 'timed' really helped the whole process.

    It is nice to read people have had success with a VBA2C. There would be so many things for me to consider before attempting one again, but it is nice to know it is achievable

    I don't think the OP was asking for horror stories so anyway..

    The risk difference between a VBA1C and a VBA2C is virtually nothing, http://www.mybirth.com.au/natural-birth/vbac.html
