  • Why are they having you get a c-section? Is it for medical reasons?

  • 1) Why are you having a c-section?

    2) What are your fears about the hospital?

  • My first was an emergency c-section so the doc says that to avoid any risk he wants to do a c section.

  • VBAC's are safer than repeat c-sections unless medically indicated. A VBAC only runs 0.4% more risk than a normal vaginal delivery with no prior c-section, whereas the repeat has increased risks that are FAR more serious. A prior c-section isn't a good reason to schedule a repeat. Do you have any issues such as pre-e, placenta previa, uncontrollable high blood pressure, pelvis damage from a prior accident, a vertical incision? If not and you are having second thoughts, I would advise looking into a VBAC with another doctor. Try contacting a midwife and seeing if they will take you on as a patient so that you feel more comfortable.

    I just had a VBAC 9 months ago. It was wonderful. :)
