  • Yes, it went well. I prefer it to a c-sec any day.

  • My mother had one. She said it is a little harder than a natural birth. Ask your doctor if you have any question or concerns.

  • I tried to go Vbac with my second child, but my uterus was near rupturing, and thankfully, my doctor had a c-section scheduled for me anyway the next morning, so it saved my life. However, Michelle Duggar (from 19 kids and Counting) has had a number of Vbacs.

  • My sister just had one in October that went very well. No different from any other vaginal birth. Your risk of uterine rupture is less than 1%.
