I had a c-section with my first and a VBAC with the twins. I have not experienced any incontinence issues with either birth.

The risks of a c-section are so much greater than with a vaginal birth...if we have more kids I will absolutely go for a VBAC again. Even after having a forceps-assisted delivery with Baby A, "significant sidewall damage," and tearing and stitches, the recovery was so much easier than with the c-section, and I felt "present" after the birth instead of foggy and nauseous.

Are your issues something that kegels or other exercises might help? I would ask your doc and see if you can do anything to prevent further damage.

Good luck, and I hope that you and baby are both healthy no matter what kind of birth you choose!
