My Ob has given me the option of have an elective c section or a VBAC. I have had stage 4 endo and adhesions removed 2 months prior to falling pregnant. I also had my uterus and stomach wall separated as They were stuck together. My Ob said that he would recommend a VBAC as further surgeries cause more problems and I still have about 10% of my uterus and stomach wall adhered together and possibly my bowel is caught up in there somewhere too so it can become quite complicated surgery.
Basically a VBAC would be much better than a c section but a planned c section much better than an emergency as the surgeon could be a bit better prepared. I have until 30 weeks to make my decision ( I'm only 15 weeks now). What I'm after at the moment is some good reading material on VBACs so that I can arm myself with lots of information to help me decide. I got to 9cm with DD but she was in distress and when the Dr asked me to try pushing DD wasn't getting enough oxygen ( she had the cord around her neck and it wasn't long enough for me to push her out so when i pushed it choked her). So my body has been through the labour process before just not the actually delivering/birthing part.
My DDs birth was pretty traumatic and I ended up with post surgery infection, adhesions and organ binding that made me infertile until I had a lap and they found the problem and dealt with it. I had PND and breast feeding issues. so would love for a birth where I feel more in control.
So if anyone knows of any good books, websites, links to articles etc I would greatly appreciate you sharing them with me. thanks.
