  • YES!!! Join the VBAC group for more info.

    MANY times VBAC is the SAFEST choice for mom and baby. Repeat csections come with LOTS of risks.

  • Of course! Many women do it everyday!!
    :-)

    It is safer for most women to have a vaginal birth even after cesarean(s), so it's worth looking into.
    If you'd like more help and info let us know~~

    Good luck!

  • The OB I went to recently said that his hospital won't allow a VBAC from a woman who's never had a prior vaginal birth. All the OBs think it's ridiculous, but the hospital makes the rules... I want to deliver vaginally next time, so I'll cross that hospital off my list of options!

  • Keep in mind that it's illegal to force anyone into a medical procedure without consent.
    If a hospital has a "no VBAC policy" they are not being truthful; they can and must allow vaginal births to those that desire them. But by saying this it filters everyone into a nice streamlined managed & scheduled birth. How convenient!
