2nd vbac anyone?

Postby Hunnybunny22 » Sat Jun 29, 2013 5:53 am

so i was told by my consultant the risk is never depleted once you have a c section. so every vaginal birth is called a vbac.
i had a c section with my first and vaginal birth with forceps 2nd. this time im hoping for a water birth with no interventions. they did say the success rate goes up the more vaginal births you have after the c section so i guess i have that on my side. and the risk for scar seperation is 1 in 1000. if i cannot go into labor naturally this time my whole chance for a natural birth is ruined. has anyone had more than one successful vag birth after Cesarean?

Mine was very quick. Water broke at 1:10am (that's when contractions started...I was asleep and woke up to a big contraction, then water broke), delivered at 3:30. So, 2 hours 20 minutes. I did ask for an epidural, not realizing I was in transition. I wanted a natural labor, but when I got to the hospital I was only at 4cm. I thought if the contractions were already this painful, then there's no way I could bear it if they got worse. Little did I know that I progressed very quickly and was already fully dilated. I started pushing as the anesthesiologist came in the room. It was amazing though. So, no interventions for me...but it was close!

Stacy - I love your birth story - that is so amazing - can't we all get a 2 hour labor?! :)

Hunnybunny - we must be sisters separated at birth, I also have a 2 and 4 year old, and now going for my 2nd vbac hoping for a water birth. I have wanted a water birth with my previous labors, but it just didn't work out. Are you going with a midwife for your vbac?

yes everything is midwife led here unless your high risk. i have asked for a birth center birth with a pool and relaxing atmosphere. if this cannot be possible ill use the bath at home and have a home birth and the midwives fully support me. i need to see a consultant midwife on the 24th to discuss what i fully want as the last 2 times i had were horrible and medical. good luck to all of us and congrats for the babies born. i really want to avoid induction/c section and instrumental birth

I've had two successful vbac's. My last was an induction so it doesn't necessarily mean just because you didn't spontaneously start laboring you can't vbac safely. I had very high blood pressure and had to be induced at 39 weeks, plus she was measuring big. I had the foley bulb placed, pitocin a couple hours later when it fell out, and everything progressed beautifully. So please don't get discouraged just because you don't begin laboring on your own. But I do understand the fear....I always worry something will go wrong, but I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth everything went with my induction....good luck!
