Ok so I went to see the big consultant guy about my iron being low. Gave me some medicines, told me if they don't work I could try iron infusions.. all good
Then he said so will need to discuss delivery next time we meet. Where you thinking of a natural birth this time? I said well I've had 2 c-sections and expected to have to have another surgery. He said well I would be happy if you wanted a vbac. I was almost speechless for ages!! Then I said about my babies getting bigger each time and Ben getting stuck and not wanting that to happen again. He said yes I just thought I would bring you in 2 weeks early and induce you. Then he said, well I ll see you in 4 weeks have a think about it. Wow I really have some thinking to do!!

Wow sounds like they want you to make decisions soon!
Good luck! I'm sure whatever you decide will be the right decision for you!

While its great he's pro vbac....I have never heard of a dr inducing a vbac.

My 7lb 7oz 1st child got stuck and the 7 after her came out fine. Most were bigger.

That is nice that he's so open to the idea of a vbac! You should definitely do what you feel comfortable with though. I don't know much about vbacs other than most docs won't even mention it unless the patient does.

I was offered VBA2C (ultimately ended up with another c/s though, breeched baby).

Induction with a VBAC increases chance of uterine rupture, so I'd be concerned about that. Just do your research!

DS2 was larger than DS1. All through my pregnancy my OB kept commenting on how big DS3 was going to be. He ended up being my smallest, by over a pound!!!

As others have said, my doc specifically mentioned a greater chance of uterine rupture with an induced vbac. In fact, my doc won't even induce for a vbac--it has to be either natural labor onset with a vbac, or a C-section. Don't be afraid to ask questions and get the info you need to make a good decision.

My friend had an induced vbac although the induction wasn't planned.

It's always better (barring true medical reasons) to go into labor naturally. This is especially true for VBACS. Personally, I would want to try for a vaginal birth, without induction.

Note that the risks of cesarean increase each time. This may be important to you especially if you want more kids.

What do you mean by "stuck"? He didn't engage? It could have been a positioning issue rather than size. There are exercises you can do in pregnancy to help baby get in a good position along with chiropractic care. Being upright in labor helps a lot too. Pushing in a squatting position or on hands and knees really opens up the pelvis. Laying on your back is the worst position to birth in :/

Good luck with your decision!

His shoulders got stuck, shoulder dystocia. It was really frightening. His head came out with the cord wrapped around his neck 2x. And his shoulders were wedged inside. So many people came running into the room. Luckily I had had an epidural because they were doing loads of manoeuvres trying to free him. When he was finally born he was a deep purple colour and floppy. They took what seemed forever to resuscitate him. Then took him to special care for a few hours. When I got to see him his whole body was bruised, his eyes were full of blood and he had marks around his neck from the cord. So I'm worried that if baby is bigger again this time ( they've all got bigger) that the baby could get stuck again and I may not be as lucky as I was with Ben. He seems absolutely fine now.

Im all for VBACs but early induction is always rough.
