I recently had a baby, November '12 and due to a few complications I had to have an emergency c section. I'm currently pregnant again (oops..) and my dr said I could do a VBAC but the chance of me and baby dying are 60% higher and if I do VBAC there isn't an option of c section if I have complications again.
What I'm wondering is how true that is?
And mom that have had two c sections...is healing more painful, and worse the second time around??
I had two c-section then three vbac. I healed faster with my second c section then my first. My doctor encouraged me to have a vbac after my second c-section, he was my biggest baby of the bunch and was the easiest to deliver. I'm wondering why the doctor said you couldn't have a c-section if your vbac didn't work?
So, all of you that had 2 sections in a row, it was easier for you to heal the second time? I know it probably sounds selfish, but I'm just scared of the recovery being harder. Because I remember it being pretty bad the first time. But then again I was in labor for 36 hours before I got one. My dr is pretty strict, and he's the best in the area I'm in. I called another dr to get a second opinion but he never got back to me.
All I'm really worried about is what's safest for the baby, and the recovery time for me.
Hmmm..that does not sound correct about no section if you try VBAC...
I had 2 sections. The first was an emergency as I was dying ( dd died in utero at 36 weeks) after 3 days of inducement and no progression. The second was planned, but early. It was planned for 39 weeks, but due to Pre-E, it was at 34 weeks instead. I have no experience with VBAC. I would get another opinion myself.
I've had 3 c-sections. My dr told me that he didn't recommend a vbac, because I might wind up having a c-section anyway. I don't know if there's a greater chance of complications or not. Healing was about the same for all 3.
