    (Mods help) Was your VBAC a successful vaginal birth?

    Hi mods, can we possibly add a poll to this to find out how many attempted VBAC's from the women in here ended in an emergency c-section vs a successful vaginal birth? I have read so many statistics and would like to get a real world example.

    Would like to see results too! I had a failed vbac I think you see lots of successful vbac stories on the forum but not a lot of failed vbac stories cause with me I don't really wanna talk about it much because it was so disappointing (understatement)!!!

    Just wanted to say - not failed VBACs girls! Successfully brought little people into the world, just not quite in the usual way Still happy healthy Mums and bubs

    I am hoping to get my VBAC, but if I don't, it wont be from lack of trying - and bubs will be born regardless, no way I could love my kids more if they came out my lady bits.

    Mine ended in elective c/s after not going into labour after 14 days/42 so there might need to be a few scenarios/options.

    WannabeMum Good luck hun!! Spot on - we birth a child regardless of where they come out. xoxo

    It would be good to see! I had another emergency c/s after going into labour but rupturing. Maybe a poll that said VBAC, emergency c/s, non-emergency c/s What do you think?

    assisted/unassisted vaginal? There could be 4 options I like the idea! Snap shot - also stats gathering where there is some limited data

    That sounds good - how to you get a poll up and running?

    WM - I know it's not really a 'failure' as such I tried to VBAC and I truly I couldn't love my kids anymore than I do they are my everything (the vbac attempt doesn't effect my feelings towards them at all! I just hate myself!!!) sounds horrible but I can't change my feelings if I were to have another baby I would be trying for another vbac (if all is good with the pregnancy etc) I will never give up hope.

    i had 2 attempts at induction and finally had him with a heavily medicated unassisted vaginal delivery 15 days post dates, funny enough I am not as pleased as I thought I would be, I still feel as though I failed in a way as my body would not go into labour naturally and had an epidural most of the way, every time they turned off the syntocin I would stop contracting! yes I had a VBAC but I don't feel it was "successful" to the standard I had dreamed of for 10 months. I honestly feel c section recovery was easier as I can still hardly walk and have a lot of stinging down there and now have stress incontinence and roids!!! I don't feel emotionally healed like I imagined I would be

    In my Zombie proof fortress.

    Went for a VBAC but due to a serious uterine infection ended up with an emergency c-section, so never got a chance to try.
