Anyone have a vbac after 2 c-sections?

I just had a baby 3 months ago but my husband wants a third one, and we are probably waiting another year before we start trying. I was just wondering if anyone out there has had a vbac after 2 c-sections? If so how did it go? Is it better to go with a midwife for this than an MD? Any stories, opinions, etc would be helpful. Thanks.

  • I have not but I have worked with a midwife that attends VBACs. You will probably have better luck finding a midwife that will attend one than a dr. Good Luck :)

  • I had a VBAC after 1 c-section , but I know lots of women who have had VBA2C. (I even met a lady who had a VBA5C!) In fact, just yesterday, a woman in my local ICAN chapter had a VBA2C with triplets. I would suggest checking out ican-online.org. They have lots of useful info and can put you in touch with the right providers in your area to help you. Also, if you want inspirational VBAmC stories, check out theunnecesarean.com.

  • I have a friend who had VBAC than another c-section and then another VBAC (she has 7 children total). She said the c-section did some damage to her body, and can make things harder in some ways, but with the right care she was fine...and she had all home births (save for the c-sections obviously).

    Midwife would be your BEST bet...since sadly, many OBs refuse to do VBACs....and have no experience with it.
