I had a c section with my first and now im expecting my second. I really want to have a normal birth with this one, i was just wondering how different it is and is there alot of risk?

It is a lot differant but everyone is differant as to how they handle it. My first VBAC was only 8 hours from start to baby in my arms. The risk is lower so long as you have had a healthy pregnancy. That being said, a lot of people might disagree with me. I don't see why you'd get major abdominal surgery without even giving yourself a chance. I've had 3 sucessfull VBACS. No problems, besides bleeding a little too much with my first VBAC which they solved with a bit more pitocin to get my uterus to contract. All the best!!

I had 2 Cesareans and then a vaginal. I am SO glad that I gave it another try! The entire experience was everything I'd hoped it would be and even though I did have some substantial tearing, the recovery was far better. Not to mention, having never gone into spontaneous labor, it was just neat to feel that excited rush that you always see/ hear about. I've also FINALLY had success with breast feeding this time around. I had a very supportive dr and delivered at a hospital that really encourages VBAC's so they treated it like any other healthy labor & delivery. It took 3 pregnancies and sooo much effort and patience but it was all worth it to me! I can also say that I felt much safer giving birth vaginally versus all of the risks associated with a major surgery.
