Unfortunately I am seeing it more and more. Everyone I know is ending up with c/s. Vaginal birth is becoming the rarity rather than the norm.

That just makes me sad. I mean, did it really take a scientific study to figure out that inductions lead to a 50% chance of a cesarean? Ask any well informed woman in the matter of birth (i.e. doulas, midwives, VBAC momma's, etc) and we could tell you that just from first hand knowledge.

While they don't see it going down, I really hope the new ACOG stand will help reduce the number of secondary cesareans. I just wish there was a way to make first time mom's know the path they are on, so that they could get off of the wrong path!!!

I totally agree with you ladies.

I'm saddened by the fact that my doctor implied any more babies I have will be section babies. I'm TRULY hoping to discuss VBAC with him in a year or so (when DH and I are ready to start trying for #2); that way I can either get him to agree to it, OR find another OB who is for VBAC's. By the time #2 is born, it will have been at least 4 years (if not 5) since my c-section.
