    Congratulations on your VBA2C!!. I have read you birth story and top 10 tips for VBAC. I will definitely take these tips on board, thank you.
    I am in Melbourne.
    I am doing everything I can to educate myself on VBAC. I hired a private Midwife, booked in for Calmbirth classes, doing as much reading as I can.
    I have run into some opposition in the hospital where I will have the baby but thankfully I have been referred to a VBAC specialist! I will be seeing her next week.
    I also have a fantastic support team in my husband, my mum and my private midwife.
    Now just keeping positive and looking forward to the day!

    Default Vba2c

    I was induced and ended in a emergency c-sec (won't go in to it but I believe it all could have been avoided). Fell pregnant with number 2 when my first was 12 months and was determined to have a VBAC. I hired a brilliant doula and did tones of research, I would recommend watching business of being born series (especially the one on VBAC) also read the silent knife. Anyway I went into labour 12 days past edd, laboured for 3 days. Dilated 3cm each day, went into the hospital at 9cm and started involuntary pushing as we arrived. Had my baby 10 minutes later on my hands and knees on the floor in delivery room, no tearing or anything!

    All the best, you can do it! Keep your self surrounded by positive people who support what you are doing an don't let doctors intimidate you with their fear tactics.

    Hi - I am also looking at a VBA2C. My first 2 c/s were due to big babies that would not enter my pelvis & so labour just did not start. I'm unsure whether I gave them enough time and if I had waited longer whether my body would have gone in to spontaneous labour or not?

    This time I am hoping I can convince my ob that if things are favourable, whether she'll let me go to 42 weeks before scheduling an elective c/s. But I need more information on the risks of having a c/s at later dates. I can't seem to find any information when I search for it.

    Belly82, which hospital did you birth at in Sydney? I'm booked in to RPA.
