My vbac attempt almost killed me. If you attempt it do your research, make sure your doctor is following all the vbac rules do they don't put you at risk, make sure your husband knows everything, check that your hospital is vbac friendly.

How scary

Thank you today we were talking about the risks, what happens if it goes bad...worst case scenarios...all the ins and outs

He said too that if things don't seem to be moving along with my cervix he advises a c section. But he prefers women to have vbacs

 I read a post the other day from a mom who is planning to attempt a vba2c and how a nurse in her OBGYN's office was shocked and was trying to talk her out of it.

And her comment that stuck with me...it was something along the lines of "instead of respecting me for not taking the easy way..."  To me, when it comes to matters of my health as the mother of my children, I will ALWAYS choose "the easy way".

I tried. I did everything they say to start labor, and a few weird ones. Red raspberry leaf tea, evening primrose oil, fresh pineapple, bouncing on a labor ball, nipple stimulation, walking, sex, chocolate labor cake, having my membranes stripped, and a bromelein supplement. I went to 41 weeks and had to have a scheduled csection.

At that point I knew I had tried everything so I wasn't disappointed. Do your research and talk to your OB about their policies.

Good luck!

I had 3 csections ( young and not educated enough) my last 3 were born at home unassisted. Learn to trust your body, work through your fears before labor and look into hypnobirthing. You can do it! O and if your going to vbac in a hospital I suggest having a doula :)

 I had two, they went great. The healing was so much easier than a c-section.

Thank you! I was thinking maybe if I didn't go into labor on my own I'd just say hey let's have a c section. But something in me really wants to try this
