I need some reassurance that it is possible to deliver vaginally after a diagnosis of failure to descend which resulted in a c-section. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and met with the one OB in the practice that I really wasn't looking forward to meeting. I hadn't heard good things about her at all and she didn't disappoint. My husband went with me and she said that my chance of a successful VBAC was less than 50% because I had actually made it to the pushing stage with my DD. Right then I knew she had my husband convinced I should have a c-section. She also went on to say that if she was on call on a weekend and I went into labor and was trying for a VBAC that she wouldn't be very happy if she had to hang around all day while I was in labor. She also found out that I work at the hospital that I would deliver at and she said if I had any friends in the OR that they wouldn't be very happy with me if I tried to VBAC because the anesthesiologist would have to be there the whole labor, an OR team would have to be immediately available, and they would have to keep and open OR just in case. I was immediately irritated. I won't be meeting with her again. That's for sure. I just want to know that there are actually people out there who were able to deliver vaginally after having a section for failure to descend and actually pushing for awhile. I really, really don't want another c-section if I can avoid it. I think it really contributed to my PPD and I'm going to have a toddler and a newborn to take care of. Sorry this got a bit long.
