I had emergency csection three years ago I had placenta previa,i scheduled for a c section but the placenta came and I started bleeding, baby and I where well. three years late, I'm expecting my fourth child and I was hopeing to have a vaginal birth, my doctore is saying its to dangeres to have a vaginal do to my csection I do plan on having more children but I dont want any more c section for all the right reasons. the last doctore said to wait to have another baby for two years, we did know this one says its to risky I disagree.
I understand the desire of not having another C section. I am 7 weeks post planned C section and still not 100%. I am only now able to start some more "intense" excercising other than walking.
I think a vaginal delivery after a C section depends on how the cut was made - vertical or horizontal. A vertical cut would not "allow" you to have a vaginal delivery due to the risk of your abdominal muscles tearing open.
Ask the doctor what are the really concerns - what does "too dangerous" really mean or refer too? Is your placenta in the same location this time?
I had an emergency c section due to face presentation.. I had a previous vaginal deliver.. with my 6 years after my c section I had a vbac and everything went well.. you need to research it and make sure you are not induced, not over due date, go into labor naturally, have a dr who can preform emergency c sections and anesthesiologist at the hospital all the time in case you do need an emergency c because there will be no time... research and do what you feel is comfortable.. I am so glad I went vbac!
Most doctors will not do vbac any longer. If you really want to pursue that option you are going to need to consult with other doctors and you may have to deliver at a hospital further away. I did rupture during a vbac, so if you have any questions about that, please ask.
While there is some risk involved in a VBAC, Doctors push against it mainly becuase of liability, some don't want to risk it while others their insurance won't allow it. I had a c-section with my first and have had 4 very successful VBACs. If this doc won't allow you to do it, I would suggest that you find one who will. Don't back down, it is YOUR RIGHT to choose how you would like to give birth. With my VBACS it was all different situations.
The first, my child was stillborn, but we knew it before hand...they offered a c-section but i wanted a VBAC to see if I could do it. I was doped to the hills, had a very small episiotomy and all was well.
The second my labor was 7.5 hrs long and i went completely natural...no drugs
The third was under 4 hours and i had an epidural BARELY before he came out...i mean he dropped while i was getting it and when i laid down he was crowning.
The fourth I was induced....and labor was under 8 hours.
