I wanted to know what makes you a good candidate for a VBAC.. im a ftm i had a c section done with my son and I'd love to have more kids in the future today I went to a doctor's appointment. and she commented on how there's that option now for women who have had c section but didn't really explain how they evaluate you to see if your a good candidate for it. I just would not like having another c section recovery for me is.going  very rough

They don't evaluate you ,  they just look & see what caused you to have a previous cesarean . . . If they feel like you can do , they'll encourage you that it's a good choice. I know my doctor did(: but idk if imma follow through. I have a doctors appt monday & I may not do a vbac although I already signed the papers for it when I was about twenty something weeks?.

Are u nervous to try the vbac?

My first was vaginal. My second c section due to ruptured placenta.  Dr said I am perfect candidate for a vbac. I haven't decided if I will yet.

I went in last Wednesday to see if i can have a Vbac because i didnt want to have my 3rd baby boy a csection cause as u kno recovery is so long. She told me that its very hard for a woman to have a vbac after 2 csection because if when you are pushing its possible for the incision they made in ur uterus to rip open and you can start bleeding internally and the baby can die......when she told me that i was kinda scared but upset because i really wanted to try to have him normal. But i have a tendency to not dilate with my pregnancies thats y i have csections. When u go in for a vbac they see ur previous csection history or labor history and see from there
