My first was a c-section, my second a vbac, and my third we're hoping will be natural as well..... make sure you have lots of support and a great doctor to keep an eye on you, hopefully everything will go well

I haven't but hopefully someone can help you.I would think it depends on why you had the 1st C-Section.

Sorry hun, I don't know much about this. But I do remember hearing that women nowadays have successful vaginal births after cesarians. Best of luck to you!

My cousin has had 6 c-sections. So it is possible I think the risks of a ruptured uterus go up with everyone but she told me that her obgyn is not too concerned.

I had a c-section with my 1st, vbac with my 2nd and c-section with my 3rd. I have resources and links about having a vbac again because I do not want to be pushed into another c-section when it might not be necessary.

thanks everyone, I am not sure of the exact reason for the section. baby was in there slightly crooked and i pushed 2 hours and doctor said she should have moved more than that so i guess they probably said she was to big for me. also, my blood pressure was going up and her heart rate was starting to be lower, by the way she weighed 8.9 and i am 5'2 but i do really want to try to stay in shape and eat right in hope of having a smaller baby, think it is possible?

my first 2 were cestions, first one emergency and second one..well no one here does vbacs and i didn't look into my option clealry enough. so im hoping to vbac and hopefully homebirth the rest. that's why i want to wait a couple years until i try that considering a midwife may not be ok with doing a vbac at home so soon after the section. so im giving myself like 3 years to heal.

look into getting a midwife.
