What Makes Someone a VBAC Candidate? user banned
4th May '13

-I have a bilateral scar (bikini cut) on my uterus and according to my medical files I have the same cut across my uterus.



-I had a C-Section because my body wouldn't dilate past 2cm after 28 hours of pitocin labor. We later found out it was because I had scar tissue on my cervix. I have really bad (endomitriosis).



3. DD was fully engaged, head down, and the cord wasn't wrapped around her neck or anything. She ended up under distress because I was in labor for too long.




If everything proceeded well (baby in proper position, no other health issues) would this make me a VBAC candidate? Tell me your VBAC success stories!

Oh wow. Sounds like you went on to have a completely normal birth! I'm honestly way more terrified of having another C-Sec than I ever would be of vaginal delivery.

Most hospitals around here aren't equipped for a VBAC. So it's not just if you are able to or not, but if the hospital you are going to deliver at is equipped for them or not.



But, you've only had one csection, and you could have possibly not dilated cause your body wasn't ready. Most doctors will tell you you are a good candidate if you have a hospital that is equipped for them.

this is untrue..
if the hospital can do a c sec they can do a VBAC.
most hospitals wont do it because of bullshit they come up with.
sorry i am just putting that out there.
if they are not equipped for a VBAC they shouldnt be doing any births because the same things that can happen with a VBAC can happen without the person ever having a C-Sec.
