This is my second pregnancy. My first ended in an emergency c - section. The current ob office I am going to don't practice VBAC since I am new to the area I just chose the nearest ob office due to convenience. I was fine with the repeat c - section because it will be planned and since my family is 1400 miles away they will know when the baby is born. My ob also told me that due to the reasoning behind my first c - section I am welcome to switch practices and try but it will likely end in a c - section anyway. I am now starting to have second thoughts and terrified of having another c - section especially without the extreme labor pain to take away from the pain of the epidural and keep my mind occupied. I know in the end I am the only one who can make the final decision but does anyone have any advice?
