Hello Ladies. I just noticed this board so I thought I would re-post a post I left on the VBAC board yesterday for some input here.
With my first child, I delivered vaginally but had significant internal and external tearing that took about 10 weeks to heal. However, I did heal well and everything is in good working order now. At the time, my doctor told me that with a second child, a C-Section might be indicated so I always just assumed that I would be having a C-Section with this child.
During my first visit with my OB, whom I love, for this pregnancy he told me that the injuries were very unusual and that it was probably unlikely to happen as badly again and that since I made a full recovery he would be inclined to try a vaginal delivery again because recovery from a C-Section was more difficult and the risks were greater. But, he told me it is up to me and we could deliver via C-Section if I wanted.Long story short, I am looking to see what you ladies thought about recovery after a C-Section? Any advice? Thanks for listening.
