I really want to have a vaginal birth this time. Last time I had an emerg C-section because my son flipped last minute and was breech. I didn't want to opt for a c-section because last time I HAD to have one, and I think if labor just didn't progress or if I opted to have a c-section I would feel like a failure. The doctor said I have really good odds of having a VBAC so I was looking at different websites and I see things like if you have to be induced with petocin it could cause your scar to rip open and all kinds of scary things. I just wanted some advice from any moms who have been there? what should I expect?Answer Question

Honestly, I understand you wanting to have a vbac but I think you should reevaluate your thinking processes about the subject. You said you'd feel like a "failure" if you have to have another c section but yet you have a higher risk of having another c section because you've already had one so maybe you should talk to someone about your thoughts of natural birth and how you are trying to seek validation through this process. I would hate for you to become depressed if you have to have another c section. I'm sorry but having a c section doesn't make you a failure. I've had two, one emergency and the other planned. Both times I did what was best for me and my baby and I'd never consider anyone that thought of what was best for them and their baby a failure.
