Mommy's who have had 2 c sections how did your doctor take to the fact that you wanted to try for a vbac? My first was an emergency as she got stuck on my cervix, my 2nd was elective. I'm wanting to try a vbac but my doctor is against them. Stating that he will not do a vbac because it's much more risky. I've been researching, And the more c sections I have the less likely I can try for a vbac, but that's with 2 or more. If my body labors and dilates on its own I have a batter chance to try. My bodyhas no issues laboring or dialing at all. I don't know how to convince him I do not want another c section as my body can't take the stress, especially with 2 toddlers I have to chase around....any help would be appreciated
It is possible, it is safe. I've known many, many mommas who have had 3-4 c sections and gone on to have a VBAC. Change doctors, get a doula who has worked with VBAC mommas before and go for it. It's not your doctor's birth, it's yours.
I always tried to make it special for my older children too. Bringing a small gift for each to the hospital w/ me,a gift from their new brother or sister. They felt special ,welcoming the baby. When you get home ,always have them help in small ways ,asking if they can help you by getting a diaper or blanket.(small tasks) They will feel important ,a loving bond will form. Remember .however your child comes into the world ,you get a beautiful baby to hold ,cuddle and love
