those of you who are planning on having more children, are you doing to attempt a VBAC, or have a repeat section?

I'm not having more children, but if I were I would be having a repeat c/s

VBAC. I had a csection with my DD, a VBAC with my son, but i always run the risk that i will not have a supportive doctor, or run the risk of needing an emergency csection. But if i had it my way i would VBAC all the way again.

If I continue with the same doctor which I hope so because he seems to be the only intelligent person in this town I will have a repeat c-section if the baby is breech, but if the baby is head down and I wish to he is supportive of a VBAC.

all depends on when/if we have another and if we live here. If we live here I will not be allowed to have a VBAC unless the hospital changes its rules. They deem vbac's unsafe and will not allow anyone to have one

Ive had both a vaginal and c/s birth and with both came complications.
Weighing up what I went through with both Id really like to try a vbac. Although if I end up with gestational diabetes again and a big baby I will probable opt for a repeat c/s.

I said repeat b/c I have already had 2 sections and I am afraid to try a VBA2C - but I have a new OB who is skilled in VBACs and if she thinks its safe, I will consider it.

If I get pregnant sooner than I want (May) then I would prob have to have a repeat c/s. If I were to wait long to get prego then I may try a vbac. I would love to have a vbac but IDK.

I would like to try for a VBAC, but haven't had a chance to talk seriously with my OB yet. DH would like me to have a repeat c/s, but says as long as the dr. okays a vbac attempt, he would be alright with it.

I had a classical incision. I have to have a C/S next time. But, I am not sure I will get pregnant again.

My doctors office actually advocates VBAC's believe it or not. We have a midwife in our office...so I'm sure she plays a huge roll!

I am opting to have a repeat c-section this time....and only because I'm having my tubes tied at delivery. If we were having more children, I would try a VBAC.

Thank you so much mylene169 for my awesome siggy!

I had hoped to VBAC with #2, but at 39 weeks, he was measuring over 10 lbs so my OB didn't feel comfortable with me having a vaginal birth.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my wonderful siggy!

Repeat c/s here. I don't really have the option for VBAC cuz my OB and our hospital won't do them, but I don't think I would try for one even if it was an option.

I've had a tubal, so I'm not sure what I'd do. I'd probably try for a VBAC.
