Giving birth

I have had 2 c-sections and I think I may be pregnant with #3. My question is, have any of you ever given birth naturally after having c-sections? My doctor tried inducing me twice with my first daughter and I never went into labor so we did c-section and he just scheduled the surgery with my 2nd daughter. I really want to have a natural birth if I am pregnant again but idk if my doctor will allow it.

  • I'm not sure what the guidelines are for sections...I haven't ever heard anyone having a VBAC after 2 sections...maybe do some research, call your hospital or other OB offices and see what kind of information they can give you.

  • Join birth is normal. You can and should do it. Your doctor may not help you, but you don't have to use the same doctor.

    i've heard of people doing vba3+c. your best bet is going to go w/ a midwife. dr's aren't really trained anymore on vbac's.
