VBAC

Dr. advised against VBAC, so I guess it's a no go.

I was really hoping for a VBAC, but after discussing with my Dr. today, it looks like we'll just schedule the c-s.  I'm surprisingly not disappointed.  She really listened to me and talked to me about both options.  She said it was ultimately my choice, but she thinks because of some other surgeries I've had that I'm a higher risk for complications with a VBAC.  I certainly want to do what's best and safest for both me and baby, so I am taking her advice.  I think I would be really frustrated and sad if she hadn't taken time to talk about benefits/risks of both for me specifically.  I appreciate that she's looking at the whole picture and paying attention to my specific case and medical history.  Thanks so much for all of your help and support in discussing VBAC, but I guess I'm out.  I hope all of you ladies get the deliveries you hope to and that you and your babies all remain happy and healthy!  Thanks for having me here for a while!

  • I'm sorry to hear that.  Have you had prior uterine surgeries?  We get questions about that on here sometimes.

    Maybe you can talk to your doctor about how you would like your c/s to go--I think a lot of people feel better about having a second c/s when they feel like they have more input than they did the first time around.  I always hear that scheduled c/s are very nice experiences and I wish you the best.

    Yes, I've had 2 uterine procedures as well as a couple of other abdominal surgeries for complications from gallstones.  It makes sense that those would add risks, but I was still hopeful. Oh well!  My Dr. did mention that before we schedule the c/s we will have an appt to discuss a birth plan.  I was happy to hear that she wants my input and wants me to be involved in the plan.  I really love and trust her, so that makes this much easier to take.  Thanks so much for your support and kind words!

  • Sorry to hear that.  I've heard that a RCS has an easier recovery than the first.  I hope that's the case for you.

  • How refreshing that your doc brought up a birth plan even with the c/s.  Best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

    Sorry vbac isn't an option, but the above statement was true for me! My RCS was 100x better than my first C. Good luck and wishing you a fast recovery when the time comes!

    Totally agree with this!  Sounds like you have a great doctor.
