I'm Jenn, currently almost 18 wks pg- due in August. I've got 3 boys; the first 2 were vaginal deliveries, and the 3rd w/a c-section. All three of my babies have been persistant posterior.
With DS #1 I had PROM at 37 wks. He was turned and delivered w/o issues. Small little guy 5lb 4oz.
DS #2 had nuchal cord 3x around neck- forceps delivery, 4th degree episitomy, needed oxygen upon delivery, but recovered well. 6lb 4oz
DS #3 was trying to deliver chin first. Doc couldn't turn him, and his h/r was accelerating into the 200's with each push. Last ditch effort was c-section. Very healthy too and 7lb 5oz
So here I am with a pro-VBAC doc who says "go for it", which I'm planning to do. I'm here to learn about VBAC, ways to prepare for a successful one, and most importantly learn about ways to help turn or prevent another OP baby!
Any advice or tips would be MUCH welcome! Thank you!!
In my research I have discovered if you have an epidural and confined to one position in the bed you will have a harder time getting the VBAC.
I'm sure you know this, but with posterior baby it might be a good idea to labor on all fours, it might bet baby to move into a better position.
I am in no a way an expert, but I do want to wish you well! Good luck! I do hope you get your VBAC
