    Question vbac - anyone with personal experience?

    I am wondering if anyone has had a personal experience with vbac? I am 31wks pregnant with my second baby girl. I have also had an abdominaplasty and would prefer to have a vbac than go through being cut again after previous c section and abdominaplasty!

    Hi dancer, welcome to bellybelly .
    I've just moved your post to the labour forum where I think you will get more answers.
    We have a VBAC chat thread HERE where you can share with other women who have had a VBAC/ EBAC or are planning one. We also have a c-section chat thread in the Labour and Birth forum.

    Hi Dancer, I've had 2 VBACs, one at the John Hunter in Newcastle. Both were totally natural deliveries. I strongly encourage you to go for it!! Where are you planning to deliver? The JHH is a great place for a VBAC because the director of obstetrics and many of the staff specialists are very supportive.

    Thanks castle,

    I am planning to have the delivery at the john hunter. I am pleased to hear about your successful vbac, and the fact that it was at the John is encouraging to hear. I have only recently made the decision to try natural as I also have an ovarian dermoid tumour that was going to be removed during my c section, but have decided to try it natural and have the tumour removed several weeks after birth. I am trying to get into the right head space for it, so all positive vbac stories are welcomed thanx.

    Did you see Dr Bissetts for you deliveries?

    Hi Dancer,

    My last baby was a VBAC. My c section was for a breeh presentation and I choose not to have a medicalised birth for my 4th child. Instead of going through the hospital system though I chose to birth at home.

    Here is a link to Tehya's Home Waterbirth

    Hope you enjoy the read. Oh btw water is great for supporting a VBAC. Look into it at your hospital if you are keen. My bet is though they won't allow it as you are now a "high risk" patient.

    Dr Bisits supervised my care. He was not at the actual delivery; I was booked in to the birth centre so the baby was delivered by the midwife. He just looked in during labour.
