So I realize this is a completely personal decision, but I wanted to hear your opinions, your voices, your experience. This is an amazing community of women... smart, talented women and what better place to go for advice than right here?
Lily was a regular birth and Stella was an unplanned C-section. I labored, did the whole bit and when it was time to deliver they realized she had a brow presentation. My water had broken so they couldn't turn her without possibly snapping her neck.
I was certain I wanted to do a vbac with this third baby, until I went to the doctor today to sign the forms. It was a scary experience to sign on the dotted line, saying that a vbac was what I wanted, that they were not liable should something go wrong etc. etc. not to mention his continual encouragement to schedule the C-section.
I feel that I have researched it out, I've weighed the risk and the vbac is a solid choice, but like I said I'm curious to hear your thoughts and experiences in this matter. For now, I have a scheduled C-section on my due date, but signed the forms and if I go into labor prior to the due date I can try for the vbac. It seems like a good compromise...
