I would definitely get another opinion. If you want a VBAC then fight for it. I had to fight for mine (saw about 4-5 doctors before one said they would let me attempt a VBAC). With my oldest it ended in a CSection after 24 hours of labor (including 4 hours of pushing). Then they couldn't really come to a conclusion why I couldn't get him out. They said my pelvis is to small, I'm to small (5ft and 135lbs), or the baby wouldn't come down, or baby was turned the wrong way, or baby was to big (ha...6lbs is not big!), and my epidural was dangerous to me (numbed up to my neck). Anyways...I got my VBAC, labor was only 3 hours with no pain medication. Don't believe them when they start spewing out stuff like your pelvis being to small. How do they really know? If you're serious about attempting a VBAC then keep getting different opinions until someone says yes. It'll be worth it in the end.
