I had my first son as an induction, and the labor was beautiful, despite the pitocin and epidural. It was magical
My daughter had sever IUGR, and I was induced at 37 weeks, but even though I was progressing, the placenta could not handle labor and I had over 50% abruption
and was rushed to an emergency c-section, so fast that my husband did not have time to get dressed.
This was 1 year ago, and I am due in November. I have always said that I will go for a VBAC, and my OB supports whatever decision that I make because I have a proven pelvis, however just a few months ago, an acquaintance was laboring her VBAC, and the uterus ruptured and the cord was clamped, and the baby was lost just moments before delivery.
This story is so fresh in my mind, that I am having a hard time going for a VBAC. Are there any more stories like this? Is this a rarity?
