I'm wondering if anyone out there has had a successful VBAC after having a placental abruption? I've been trying to do a little of my own research and haven't really found anything. I had two successful vaginal deliveries with my daughters, but my son's birth ended in a c-section due to a placental abruption. Any info is appreciated.
As you can see, I've been waiting forever!! At this point, I'm losing hope that someone will respond and that I'll be able to have a vaginal birth. My OB considered it at first, but this baby is transverse, I have BP issues, and I just think it would be safer to do another c-section. I hope you have better luck! Best wishes.
Personally I would talk with a VBAC friendly provider but from the little bit that I've seen through ICAN as long as you're health and baby is healthy subsequent pregnancies after an abruption should be safe. Again though, it really depends on your health and baby's health and the best option would be to thoroughly discuss it with a VBAC friendly provider.
I have not had a placental abruption. Did they say what cuased it? My guess is that the risk is the same, your biggest risk is being pregnant after abruption period, not how you choose to deliver the baby.

My boss had a VBAC after placental abruption. She said that there were no problems. She had a midwife both times but delivered in hospital. There are 2 years in between her kids and this happened 8 years ago. Her first C section scar is the old fashioned naval and down scar.
