Re: Would you try for another VBAC if...

I also just wanted to add that I think you'd be hardpressed to find a doctor willing to let you have a TOL let alone a VBAC after your second birth. I looked in 3 counties to find a doc willing to let me have a TOL with my 2nd son. Found him (and he was rare!), but it didn't end up mattering as #2 was a c/s.
And you would definitely NOT be a candidate to try for a homebirth again. You are too high risk now. Sorry mama!

And also wanted to add I'm thankful you followed your gut. And that you didn't hemmorrhage (a risk with shoulder dystocias). I wonder if that would make a doctor worry more if you did find one that would let you have a TOL (because of A. a previous c/s B. a s/d that increases risk of hemorrhage).
