My Mood:

I am trying for a vbac. The hospital is 1 hour away. I am scared for all the reasons you mentioned. But, my csection was for fetal distress and my body showed no signs of being unable to progress or whatever, so I feel okay about that.

If I was looking at 2 hrs away? I don't know. I would probably opt for the cesarean. I would be sad about it. homebirth might be an option for you. And if you have a good midwife who will monitor well and understands the potential complications, then you should be good. I am not allowed to have a homebirth here, so that's moot for me. but it's something I have considered. Our hospital did deliver a vbac recently because mom stayed home until it was time to push and there wasn't much they could do except deliver the baby. I tell myself that's another option
