VBAC after 6+ years?
With my 1st 3 pregnancies I had natural childbirths, everything went perfect, fast births no problems. With my twins, they were both sideways, so my OB opted for an automatic C-section. So I started to research into it now about doing a VBAC for the next one.
Does waiting longer after having a c-section make it better or worse to try for a vbac? It has been 6 1/2 years and still may be another year until we try and conceive.

Re: VBAC after 6+ years?
I had a HBA3CS in April. My kids ages are 12, 9 and 6, so my last c/s was over 6 years before my vbac. I think the incision heals up pretty soon after the surgery so I don't see how it would be a bad thing that it's been a while since your c/s. I don't know that it really helps either, though. GL!!

Re: VBAC after 6+ years?
thank you! It is one of my biggest concerns. I am hoping since all my other pregnancies were so perfect ( twin preg was as well) and i had fast perfect deliveries that I would be able to do a natural cb :)

I'd think that time would be on your side, seeing that I've read more about worries of rupture due to pregnancies spaced close together.

I think it would help if anything. The OB I used to work for insisted her VBACS be at least 2 years apart because she had a rupture with one that was only 1 year apart. Mine were 5 years apart.

I think that the longer between the c-section and VBAC would be a good thing.
