If you have had 2 c sections (elective at private hospital) and were pregnant for the 3rd time and decided to go public, would you be able to opt for another c section, or would you have to try for a VBAC?

Once you've had a c section you will be given the choice I'm sure. At least that's how it worked for me after 1 for breech my next in public i was given the option. I went for vbac but no pressure either way. I could've chosen cs anytime even with my 3rd when I had successful vbac for my 2nd.

They will definitely give you the option of a csection.

I have friends that have had emergency c sections for first children in private hospital and then had the second via elective csection in public hospital (to save $s) without a problem getting in.

After 2 CS they will generally recommend having a repeat elective. If you are wanting to have a VBAC though you'll need to discuss it early on as they may transfer your care to a tertiary facility. But if you're wanting a CS I can pretty much guarantee you'll get it

Correct me if I'm wrong but regardless of which way you go (Public v. Private), they probably won't even mention a vba2c. I've discussed it briefly with a private midwife in my area as I'll hopefully be attempting a vba2c when we go for our 3rd and she said it's really hard to find support 'in the system'.
