Re: Successful with VBAC

Hi due date buddy!

my VBAC is actually similar to your c-section! my labor with DS was slow, long, and drawn out. luckily we were working with a great mw team, so when my water broke they allowed me to stay at home and try natural ways to start labor, instead of going to a hospital where they would force labor.

after that experience, my advice is start eating healthy. one thing a hospital might try and tell you is that "your baby is too big" so start with good eating habits. also, stay at home as long as you can. if your water breaks, as long as you're at home the risk of infection is very low. at a hospital, they will make sure you deliver 24 hours after your water breaks. lastly, find a chiropractor or research "spinning babies" information. i've become convinced if the baby is not in the right position (even if slightly off) the baby will not be born.

ICAN is a great resource, lots of information, and even have advocates near you so you can talk with someone and get advice.

anyone can have a successful VBAC, you should be prepared and informed!

Re: Successful with VBAC


I agree with you on eating healthy. I think it's super important! Luckily I already was before I got pregnant, so keeping that up hasn't been an issue at all! I'll look into the other stuff you posted. Thanks!

I had a successful vbac and my reason for my section was failure to descend. I full dilated but pushed for four hours. I think the real issue was laying on my back the whole time. I ended up vbacing a larger baby unmedicated. Hire a doula!
