  • Can you find a doctor/ midwife in your area who specializes in VBAC care? It sounds like your worries are because you aren't getting good communication with your health care provider. Call around. No matter how far into pregnancy you are, you have the right to switch doctors for any reason.

  • It sounds like you think you have to have another C-section and that will mean you can't have any more babies. For that reason you are considering VBAC. You regret your second C-section and that you didn't know the dangers of repeated C-sections.

    You are right to be concerned about having more than 3 C-sections. Even a third C-section carries increased risk. It can be hard to find a doctor or midwife and hospital that allows VBACs. Some homebirth midwives do VBACs. There are factors that make having a VBAC safer. One important factor is how long it has been since your last C-section. The World Health Organization recommends at least 3 years. Some doctors or midwives will allow a VBAC if it has been 18 months.

    All women should take childbirth classes, read books, look at websites, educate yourselve. Doctors don't tell women what they need to know to make informed decisions. I hope you are able to have the VBAC you want.
