UK mums.. anyone have a VBAC induction?

Postby Hunnybunny22 » Tue Mar 08, 2011 8:40 am

i have found conflicting information on whether or not this is allowed to be done or the risks are too high. i know in some countries its considered ok but i cannot seem to find any information over here about it my midwife is clueless. i had a GP tell me they wouldnt let me go overdue this time when i was very early in my pregnancy but i dont know if this is the case if so i have 3 weeks to deliver this baby naturally. kind of puts the pressure on ya know :roll:

Just saw this! I wasn't induced but ended up having pitocin anyway (long story). I wouldn't recommend it, I would just tell your doctor that you're going to let BABY decide when it's time, not them! Unless there is some serious medical reason for not going past your due date, there's no reason to have one. I went a week overdue and VBAC'd a 10 lb baby with no serious issues. It can be done. If you want a VBAC, then just do it. It's YOUR birth.

Just wanted to say that you can be induced but you wouldn't get the gel only the drip, on a lower dose and you will be monitored closely. I was told this during my vbac attempt. I went 5 days overdue and went into labour naturally unfortunately my vbac didnt work out. I hope this helps and you get your vbac.
Goodluck

thanks so much peardrop. do they break the waters if they can do that or automatically put you on the drip?

im just afraid that being on the drip i will have to get an epidural for the pain but then this leads to interventions. ugh

Yes they broke my waters and I was on the drip anyway because I was dehydrated and had a temperature. I did end up having the epidural but for me it was a blessing because I needed an emergency section and I imagine there wouldnt have been enough time to do it then. I have a birth story if you like.

hi there thanks

sorry i have been a while posting about it.
i was induced on the 15th day over at 4pm because i still hadnt gone into labour i had been losing loads of plug the week before but nothing,
i was given a propess pessary that they insert behind the cervix and it quickly got to work i was having contractions 3 hours after which intensified they got to 3 minutes apart so they took out the pessary but i had only reached 1cm but fully effaced. before the induction i was 0cm but 60% effaced.
my contractions stopped after they took the pessary out and i was on an antenal assesment room on labour ward they will not put you in a room until you hit 4cm.
they monitored me every few hours and left me to walk and do what i needed to do. they put another pessary in at 12am.
soon after the pains were comming every 5 minutes i couldnt sleep. it got to 6am and the pain intensified so they checked me and said i was 3cm so they asked me if i wanted a bath so walking down the hall the pain got worse and worse i managed to get 1 foot in the bath by this time about 15 minutes had passed. i was screaming for the midwives because i felt pressure. i got back to the room they checked me and i was 6cm they moved me to my own room and gave me some gas an air. they couldnt pick up my daughters heartbeat so they used an internal clip which was agnoy without an epidural they gave me gas and air but nothing stronger because they said she would come quickly, they broke my water at 7cm and the pain went from a 4 to 100 i was in so much pain, i asked for an epidural but they wouldnt give me one. i finally got one when i was 9cm but it was 2 late 10 minutes later i needed to push, so in 1 hour and 40 i had gone from 3cm to fully dilated, her heartrate was dipping so they got the drs in the use forceps and do an episiotomy. that was agnonising and i lost a lot of blood they managed to get her out in 20 minutes and she was born at 12.02pm i had a few complications but over all the whole thing took 20 hours from starting the induction to having her and active labor was 1 hour 40
