Quoting Vicarious✩[18 wks]:" If you had a failed VBAC tell me your labor story. Was the c-section recovery hard? Today I saw another ... [snip!] ... ideally they want me to give birth by Halloween but they would let me go to 42 weeks (November 6th) assuming I don't have GD. "


I don't know why it would be harder to recover. I labored for 31 hrs then 2 of pushing then had my c section. I would assume if it would have been a VBACS attempt it would've been the same. I have heard of it being harder to recover after multiple sections though.



What did the doctor warn you about?

He told me there's a 1% chance of uterine rupture. He said that the risk of infection is greater if I have a failed VBAC. I can't remember what other risks he told me about.

I never went into labor so I guess thats a failed VBAC? I went 42 weeks, recovery was easy. The C-section was easy. I got to hold my daughter as soon as they stitched me up and I never went into recovery, just straight to my room. I had no issues with recovery, easier than my first C-section.

I got told there was a 3 out of 5 chance of a successful vbac if you go into labour naturally. If you are induced its less than 50%

It's actually less.than 1%!! I would go for it. labor is also good for the baby even if you have to end up having a repeat c section.

A friend of mine in my due date group just had a successful vba2c and her baby was 9 pounds 5 OZ at birth.
That's all I know. No advice since I didn't even get the option to have the vbac I wanted.

I failed vbac. It was awful. Recovery was 9000x worse than my first emergency c-section. Labor had started spontaneously at 40w 4d.. they ended up augmenting with Pitocin :roll: (Bad idea, never again) I do plan to try for a vba2c when the time comes, but will seek out a midwife this time around.
