DH and want to start TTC again in September but I had an unpleasant c-section experience with DD and am not looking forward to a RCS.
I reluctantly consented to an induction at 40wks 3days at the urging of my Dr. She thought the baby was too big (she wasn't) and it looked like the cord was wrapped around her neck at the last ultrasound (it wasn't). I also had been having non painful yet consistent contractions for the past 4 days with no progress.
I labored over 40 hours after the start of pitocin and finally fully dilated 12 hours having my water broken. I pushed for 2.5 hours during which the baby moved down into my pelvis, got stuck then went back up. She was coming out face up. At that point the doc suggested a c-section and I agreed.
At my 6 week pp check up I asked my doctor how she felt about VBACs and she said she does encourage them, but in my case she would advise a RCS. She said that my pelvis is narrow and slightly abnormal and the only way I would be able to have a successful natural birth is if the baby is really small. My DD was 7lbs 7oz so it's not like she was big.
I had resigned myself to believe that a RCS is my only option and at first all my research on my situation did not elevate my hopes any. Then I stumbled across this article. https://www.midwiferytoday.com/articles/pelvis.asp>
So has anyone been told that they can not VBAC due to anatomy issues and still go on to have a natural birth?
