Has anyone had one successfully? Was it difficult to find someone willing to do it? A friend of mine is looking to do this. She said she refused another c-section. I'm hoping to find some encouraging stories for her. She is very scared, but knows this is what she wants.

had a VBAC and it all went really well, I had one of my midwives that were against it but my gyno and my other midwife were very supportive.

Hers is after two c-sections. But she is scared to go to a hospital or see an OB because both if her c-sections were pushed on her in the hospital, by the OB who claimed she wouldn't do one and changed things last minute for reasons that didn't have to result in a c-section. She wants one at home.



Where was yours?

I did have to have mine in hospital, but my gyno was great and was actually all for a natural birth rather than the csection. I also had a four year gap in between my pregnancys so that might have also been in my favour.



Your friend has to remember that it is her body and she has every right to have the type of delivery she wants.. unless of course there are other issues where it would be best for her self and the baby to be in a hospital environment and a csection to be performed.
She should really go see an OB ASAP .

The doctor told her on the first one, he wouldn't fit. He was too large. But he was 10lbs and she isn't small. People deliver babies that size naturally. The next was supposed to be a vbac and then she was told she needed to come in and it ended in the second c section after the doctor told her that her baby could die or be retarded if she have birth naturally. I can't remember what she said would cause it. she later researched it and the same could have resulted from a c-section. I also had this doctor and she pushed me into a c-section with my son. Things just changed when we were at the hospital. So I understand why she feels the way she does. I tops her they can't just stick a needle in your back for a spinal and cut you open if you refuse. But she is worried that they will convince her that her child is dying. She knows though that if she ripped at home, that's the end. There is no possible coming back.

There is about a 99% chance you will be perdwcly fine and can have a successful Vbac. Gather as much info as you can. Amnipcentesis is more risky than a VBAC. ;-)
