A full year after my c/s I finally got some conclusive answers on what went wrong during my induction that led to a cs. Long story short: bad positioning caused a snowball effect of problems. Just wondering if anyone here had a cs due to positioning of the baby and went on to have a VBAC? I would love to hear some success stories that might give me hope.

I did! I had y son c-seciton for breech presentation after rupture of membranes.
Then baby number two was breech at 37.5 weeks and I had a sucesful eternal version. He was posterior and had his head tilted to the side. I had an epidural with him, which I am sure did not help matters at all. He was born vaginally with a forceps assitance to fix his head position, after 2.5 hours of pushing. He ended up weighing in at 9 lb 14 oz and had a 15.5 inch head.
Baby number three was also breech at fullterm. Her external version was performed at about 37.5 weeks also. She was born about a week later after jsut 4 hours of labor.
Baby number four I did things differently. I aw a Webster trained chiro starting at 23 weeks. I did lots of breech tilts and other techniques to promote good positioning. SHe turned on her own sometimein teh 36th week.
My long story told, because it can be done. Even with presistent malpositioned babies there is hope!

My first son was a C-Section after 24 hours of labor. They say it was a combination of things, the way he was positioned (could be positioned wrong from my water breaking too early at 36 1/2 weeks), and they also said my pelvis could be to small. He was born in March 2009. I just had my second son August 6th and I had a successful VBAC.
My first was breech. They tried a version but it didn't work, so they scheduled a cesarean. My third baby was a VBA2C. A cesarean for position is the easiest thing to overcome and have a successful VBAC the next time with. Good luck!

My c-section was for a variety of reasons, but what it really boiled down to was bad positioning. He was breech at 37 weeks and I had a successful version done, but in the end he was still posterior and got stuck in my pelvis kind of sideways. After 40+ hours of hospital labor and 4 hours of pushing, I begged for the c-section!
Planning a VBAC for this baby (due in about 5 weeks), so far everything is fine, he got into position early and has been staying put. *knocks on wood*
