I had 2 c-sections, neither were medically ness. Has anyone had a VBAC after 2 c-sections??? I really want a natural delivery and I hope I can find a midwife who will do it.

There's no reason why you can't if you don't have some medical condition. If one says no, go to the next! Good luck!

I know lots of mothers have had a VBAC after 2 sections , it's called a VBA2C , if you haven't already you should go check out ICAN ( International Cesarean Awareness Network ), it's a great site for anyone interested in a VBAC with allot of info ect , it doesn't seem to be working right now but it should be up later on . And I agree you may have to do some searching to find a midwife who will agree to a VAB2C also if you are planning a hospital birth then you may have some trouble with that as well so I would call the hospitals around and find out weather they "allow" them or not . Good luck !

ICAN will be a great source for you!! I just had a friend of mine have a homebirth after 2 c-sections, to a bigger baby than her others. She is in New York. I know it is possible!! Unfortunately you will probably have to fight for it, especially if you can't find a midwife to work with. If you can't find a midwife and have to go with an OB, just hold your own, do your research and go from there. Another thing you could do is to act like you will have a c-section with the OB and then cancel it or don't show up for it. Then when you go into labor fight them tooth and nail, this is the hardest thing ever!! No one should have to fight or be forced to birth against the way they want to do things. Remember you are paying them to attend your child's birth, they are NOT paying you to be there.

Best of luck, I hope you find a midwife!

If your attendant is not 100% supportive of your decision, I would recommend hiring a doula to fight for you so you and your dh can focus on having that baby.

well you already know all my info...but i did want to addthat im mostly ending up with a cesarean again the only way i can do the VBA2C is by having a homebirth, which we can't afford (we have tried every single way to afford it and it won't work) so make sure to look into that as well!

You know, I just wish there were more choices and resources out there so we could have more control. If it's taken away, it feels horrible.

You know you don't have to agree to this, even if it is their policy. I have heard of people acting like they are going to go through with their c-section and then not show up, then if they need to reschedule do the same thing again. If I were you and you really wanted a vaginal birth and there are no real medical conditions preventing you from having one, I would just wait until I was in labor to show up at the hospital, then unfortunately you still have to fight but once you know that baby is on it's way out, there isn't much they can do but catch.

HUGE HUGS to you!! I wish more women were given their choice about how their birth their babies. Drs. are too busy covering their ##### to think about what the mother wants. I wish I had some magic answer for you.

Again huge hugs!
