I was just scrolling down the boards and saw this post and had to comment. I had an emergency c-section with my first son in 2000, ive had VBACs with my last 2 sons. jay,8 and ben,4. I was adament i was going to try a normal delivery.I havent really got much advice except go for it. I got monitored really closely and the midwife said the first sign of any complication and they would whisk me off. I wasadvised to have an epidural just incase, they didnt have time with jay, but i had one with ben.
Lurking... I had a preemie vaginally, then a c-section, and 4 weeks ago I had my VBAC! My best advise educate yourself, find an OB that is pro-VBAC and stick to your guns! If you want to read it, my birth story is over on the VBAC board.
Another VBAC mama here. Graeme's birth story is over at the VBAC board (along with Tiff's VBAC story )
My tips for anyone thinking about going for a VBAC is to read A VBAC Companion, it weighs the pros and cons. If you have already decided that you want to VBAC, check out The Thinking Woman's Guide to Childbirth.
Be prepared to fight. Knowledge is the best weapon in your fight for a VBAC.
