Totally not interested in VBAC

Posted by   + Show Post
I may be the only one, but my first baby was emergency section. I'm due in November and looking forward to another section. Anyone else have no desire to consider a VBAC?

I was given the option with my second but I was told (as I suspected) that the results would probably be the same.  It didn't really matter to me as I had no desire to try a VBAC anyways, but I'm glad they would have let me if I wanted to.  I was not given the option with my third (current) but that's okay by me as well.

Honestly, I doubt I'll be able to do a VBAC because they told me my body was too small to push them out. And after having a 30 hour labor, I honestly don't think I want to go all through that then end having a emergency c-section in the end.

Totally agree!! Too many risks involved!

I am currently ttc and am looking forward to another c-section. My first was an emergency, but I do not want a vbac!

I would do a c section all day long.

I have no interest in a VBAC either. I had a c-section with my first. And when I found out I was pregnant again my doctor asked if I wanted to try. I told him I'd rather not. He was ok with it. I'm having my second c-section in 9 days.

I have no desire. Both my kids were required csections and any there after. The thought of a vbac just isn't something I will entertain even if told it was possible.

For the vast majority of women, a c-section will be a riskier way to give birth. But like I've already stated in this post, women should be free to make their own decision about how they want to birth. I feel it's important to know all the facts involved and not to be fed false information.

I opted to go for a VBAC, knowing that if I failed, I could always have another section. 

There were a lot of unknown factors going into it, but the risks were less than having another surgery.  And I'm a big chicken as far as surgery...
