    Default Vbac2??

    I was just wondering how many people here have had VB after 2 c.sect?
    I am sure there is probably a thread already like this.But i was also wondering how hard it is to find a Ob who supports this.

    Im not planning another just yet..DS2 is only 11 weeks ..But would just love to know..
    Thanks..

    I was a vbac baby!! MY mum had a vb first, then a c/section for my middle sister then had an operation which required in essence a c/section.. Then she had me without any complications!!! So yes it is definately possible!!! If it could be done 24 years ago, with all the advances in medicine it can most vertainly be done today!!!

    A lot of hospitals/Obs do not seem thrilled about vbac, I know many women who have had vbac at home, and there are women who have had vba2c at home too.

    Bec may be along soon, if not, PM her, she had two c/s then a homebirth, and is a wealth of information. (Becca74 is her username )

    Will you be trying at home or going to hospital?
    I want a VBA2C next, but too scared to try at home, and not liking my chances of finding a doc that will let me.

    Although, the only way I could succeed is to have a VBA2C at home. I have no idea how one would achieve a VBA2C in a hospital setting - but if you contact www.birthrites.org, there are a couple of women who have had VBA3C in hospital. They might be of more help.

    Also, you can find VBA-multi-C stories here: http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/C...A2Cstories.htm which might give you insight/encouragement. Good luck

    Question I want a vbac2

    I was really unhappy with the doctors at my hospital because it seem all they wanted to do was cut me open. I wanted a vbac and found out all the info I could about it. But the doctors told me it was safer the have my 2nd baby by C-section. and silly me just went with the flow.I was really hopeful of a purebirth, now before we plan our last baby I would love to try vbac2 but have already found out that the hospital will not do it. Is there still a way I could have a vbac2 In Toowoomba QLD. I am a bit worried about trying a home birth but would try if it ment I could try for a purebirth.

    Hi there!

    Could you please elaborate on what you mean by purebirth? What worries you about homebirth?
    You have some great Independant Midwives over by you, perhaps give a couple of them a call and chat to them.

    All the best.

    If you've had 2 sections then I assume you were under the care of an Ob. If that has happened to you twice what makes you think that it's third time lucky. The message seems to be you can't get what you want with an Ob. Maybe making different choices and decisions about your birth is the only way to achieve what you want.

    I support women to have VBA2C. The chance of complication is tiny however if you go to the hospital the chance of repeat section is huge.

    I to am from Toowoomba and have had 2
    c-sections, and am finding the hospital not very co-operative in my decision of wanting a vba2c.
    One midwife I saw said it would be against medical advise but there are ways they can help, then the second Dr/midwife pretty much shot me down in flames!!
