I'm 35 years old and pregnant with my 3rd child. My children will be 17 and 13 years old by the time the baby gets here. I had a very traumatic labor and delivery with both of them (I tore very badly which resulted in massive blood loss and required an episiotomy with the oldest and endured an emergency C-section with the youngest, both labors were induced) I had them young but now that I'm older, I'm terrified of what labor will be like for me this time around. I have an appointment coming up so I'll discuss my concerns with my doctor. I'm nervous about attempting a VBAC but not thrilled about another c-section. Any advice or suggestions?
