Is there some sort of information out there that has a list of things to prepare yourself for a VBAC?
I doubt it. But thought it was worth a shot.
I had an appointment recently with a local OBGYN due to my periods stopping after discontinuing DEPO. When going over my history (previous pregnancy complications, cesearean), she told me that I was a perfect candidate for a VBAC next time around.
Being told you're a great candidate is not a guarantee it will happen. My husband and I are not planning on TTC (he's halfway through a 12 month deployment), but we know in the next 1-1.5 years we will be. I've already looked up the hospitals in the area (in my area it's about 50/50 for bans/allowing VBACS). When we PCS to Ft. Bliss next fall (moving to El Paso) ), it appears four hospitals there allow VBACS (based on the ICAN.ORG information).
So what else can I do to prepare? I want a fair chance at having a VBAC. My cesearan was planned well in advance, so I've never even labored. Coming from a mother who has had five vaginal births, and two grandmothers (one had six, the other had four)--I feel that it should be a decent shot! Not that heredity has anything to do with it, just saying.
