Re: anyone else with a failed VBAC?
I had 2 natural vaginal births, one at home and one a transfer from a birthing center to hosp. Then I had a c-sect. for my SN son who had a brain cyst. I tried for a vbac after and failed. We were 16 days late and the Dr. insisted I had to be induced. My LO was only 8.6 lbs, same as my oldest. I should have been able to do it.
I blame all the interventions that happened at the hosp. Of all my labors this last was the most horrific. It is very hard to keep your focus, relax and move as you need to at the hosp. with everyone pestering you to do this or that. It goes against all your instincts of a safe place to birth for a lot of women. It surely did for me. Contractions on pit are simply unnatural.
You may still be able to do it.
