  • VBAC, definitely. And I'll doctor/hospital shop until I find one willing to let me try.

  • I had a second c-section. It was much easier the second time, very fast recovery. I'm glad I did it.

  • vbac.

    however, i wanted a vbac after my first c-section but i had an ob surgeon and they do not allow vbacs, usually midwives will let a mother try. plus, my scar was only 13 months old when it was time for me to deliver, so they probably did not feel it was strong enough yet to undergo a vaginal labor.

  • Personally I would choose another c-section. Under different circumstances I would chose a vbac though.

  • VBAC.... unless the complication that led to the first c-section is a permanent complication.

  • I chose a repeat csection for my 5th baby after having my 4th baby via csection. For me, the csection was just easier than my vaginal deliveries.

  • I would choose VBAC! Vaginal births are so much healthier for the baby if you can swing it. It gets all the fluid out of their lungs and vaginally delivered babies actually have a different set of intestinal flora (the good, digestion helping bacteria) than those born by c-section. So it's totally worth trying.

  • Personally, I would try to have a VBAC. It's not always possible, but I would try my hardest to have one.
