Hi been lurking trying to get info. DH and I are going to start TTC baby #2 soon. I would really like to try for VBAC. DS was section and feel baby #2 we could avoid a section. I have a tear in my right hip for years no pain and no pain during pregnancy. I went into labor 39 weeks myself and dilated fully on own. Dr did brake water. I did have epidural which they put on left side because mild scoliosis. I was able to push DS to the point where saw his head and all but not passed pubic bone. I know sliding back up is common. After about a hour give or take I got extreme pain in right hip and pushing became almost impossible. They increased epidural to try and numb my right leg which only made me go completely numb and couldn't feel anything or push. With my epidural I only was numb on left side felt everything on right. I think if I was able to have epidural on right or pain under control I could have pushed him out. Now I don't know if OB does VBAC. I live in Nassau county Long Island NY. Any advice on trying for VBAC? Any great VBAC friendly OB just incase mine doesn't do them? I delivered at LIJ.
I do not know the are or hospital where you live. You can check the hospital csection rate as well as your ob/midwife. I have learned that it is really important to have a birth team that is on your side regarding vbac. Some practices are not that way. You need to do your homework to find out. Also if homebirth is legal in your state you could check out midwives in your area for that. I did my first vbac at a hospital and my other 2 hbac's. I preferred the homebirth hands down!
Wishing you a wonderful birth!
