Hi all,

My DS was born via planned c-section as he was breech. I’m undecided if I’d like to try for a VBAC for my next. We are planning to TTC in a few months. My DS was born in a private hospital.

Just wanting to hear about people’s perspectives and experiences with a planned c-section in the public system. I am considering going public next time but, honestly, am a bit scared about it. Not because I don’t think I’ll get good care (I know that I will), but purely because I’ve done the whole private thing so I know what to expect there, but I don’t have any experience with the public system.

Something to consider - my local hospital has an extremely busy maternity ward. This also makes me anxious.
