I want to try to have a vaginal delivery this go around. I had a horrible time with my dd's c-section which I didn't want anyway. I have been talking to the doctor about doing a VBAC and she says its not worth trying because I had a problem progressing past 4 cm with dd I felt robbed of having the birth experience with dd. (Had emergency C-section and was completely put under) Is it worth trying a VBAC?

I think you should try if thats really what you want! If anything give it a try and if it doesnt work out, they will give you a csection anyway (right?)! Good luck!

 I think you should go for it!! Alot of people have had sucessful VBAC'S and like she said^ .. it's worth a try..because if it doesn't work out.. then their just going to give you a c-section anyway. So why not atleast try?

Yes! Absolutely! Every birth is different!

Had you had an epidural?? They CAN slow down labor.

Also, there are so many things you can do to help labor progress without interventions. I've also been told that seeing a chiroprator throughout your pregnancy can help in labor. Regular exercise is really important too...

Keep this bumped for Doulala, she'll have some GREAT advice! :D

It's definitely worth trying a VBAC. I'd find a different doctor too, if yours says a VBAC is not "worth trying".

How many interventions did you have with your other birth? Induction, monitoring that keeps you strapped to the bed, epidurals, etc are not good for labor progression.

Check out the ICAN website.

Were you induced the first time?

How far along are you? You can always get a second opinion if your doctor is not on board babe. I think you should go for it and try. If you aren't able to do a VBAC than at least you know you tried. And you just didn't give up by settling. Do what is right for YOU.

I was 42 weeks and 3 days at 3 cm when I went in she broke my water and put me on pitocin and all the monitors you can imagine I had to lay on my back because of all the wires. I didn't get epidural until they made me when she decided to do c-section. I was devastated I felt robbed of having my baby the way I wanted to.
