It is totally normal to be scared of the unknown. I had a c-section with my first (breech and hospital wouldn't allow breech delivery) and then got pregnant with first thought was to just have another csection. My csection experience was really great and I knew what to expect, so why not?!? My family was scared for me to have a VBAC with twins.

Fortunately the OB I had for my delivery was SUPER supportive of my wish to try a VBAC, and it was an amazing experience. Even though Baby A was a forceps delivery and I had significant tearing and damage from that, actually seeing the babies come out of me was something I'll never forget. My recovery was a little rough the first day or two, but it was so much easier than with the csection. My milk came in within 48 hours.

Will it hurt? Yes...but it is so worth it. I really encourage you to go for it. Your body was made to do this!!
