I have been at the same OB since around 8 wks. Today I am 34 and 2, saw a different dr this appt that I had never seen. I saw a midwife and a different dr until now. He is refusing to do a vba2c which the other Dr's hadn't told me no..he told me you have until your next appt to make a decision..said oh well I'm going to talk to the other Dr's in the practice and tell them no...grr I'm so irritated right now :( I could just scream

My doctor performed my csection with dd. she isn't my original ob but my actual doctor left the practice before I gave birth so unless I go where my old doctor is practicing now I'm stuck.

I told her I wanted a vbac she plugged something into a calculator and said it was all ok she then said i might have to have a c-section. I don't want to be away from my daughter that long.

He didn't give any except the chances of uterine rupture which of course I already knew....he said oh if you were my family member I would tell you a csec...so disappointed after all the time spent here and being told yes...just hope he isn't on call when I go in labor

I would fight for it.

Talk to the other drs.

My first was a csection. My second was a vbac. I'm pregnant with #3 & will have another vbac.

You don't have to use this doctor.
You could switch!    
And no, of course you don't have to consent to an unnecessary cesarean, why add unnecessary risks to you and your baby?
Do you have a doula?     Are you interested in a different setting?






Reluctant doctors like to believe that they haven't much influence over
their patients, but that is clearly not the case. Several studies have
found that when doctors genuinely encouraged women to have VBACs, most
of them did, and when they said nothing or acted neutral, most women
didn't. Finally, when obstetricians discouraged VBAC in women who
wanted to try it,none of them did.

Well you have options. Look for another doctor. Or show up at the hospital in active labor and refuse the sign for a csection.

I'm not sure if he told you this but the chance of uterine rupture are the same weather you have had a vbac or weather it's your first baby

Sounds like you need a doula.
