I really wanted to experience childbirth.... yeah i know c-section is still childbirth but i dont know i just think its more beautiful the other way. I was so drugged up that i didnt get to be 100% there when my son was born... everything was so blurry and i was so sleepy. Have any of you been able to have a normal delivery after a c-section??

Most women do "qualify" for a vaginal birth after a cesarean (regardless of what might be told to a woman by her OB).
Depending on a few health issues, most likely you can have a vaginal delivery.Â Â If you are hearing "no" from your doctor (who is a surgeon), be sure to get other opinions.Â And if you get a "yes" from anyone please investigate that provider's record and at what circumstance they change their mind.Â (There will be some point where you'd "risk-out" in their opinion.Â Â This can be further investigated to see how risky these possible scenarios might truly be.)
Choosing a truly supportive care provider is absolutely key.Â Statistically, you'll have a better chance at success the farther you stay from the surgeons (and honestly, even the hospital).

There is a lot of information being published about the overuse & misuse of surgical deliveries. It's estimated that about 2/3rds of cesareans are not necessary (even if they might have been considered or the mom was told this at the time of consent). Criticism is everywhere that over 30% of American women have cesarean births... it keeps rising.
If you want to learn more about VBACs there are a lot of support groups and books out there. Let me know if you'd like help to locate them!
