Re: VBAC or 2nd C-Section...that is the question...GRRRR

At first I just assumed I would have a repeat c/s, but then I did research and learned how small the risks really were (and how surgery has its own risks). I needed to switch to a new practice because my OB was supportive in theory but overly conservative in practice. I thought switching would be a big to-do, and at the time it caused me a little stress, but overall it really wasn't that hard. The new practice was happy to have my business.

I was told my pelvis was platypelloid and far too narrow to have a baby both pregnancies at 36 weeks. But your body knows what to do - by 40 weeks it was "roomy" and "cavernous." I still had no arch in the front but I made up for it with lots of room in the back. Your baby's head might be big, but that doesn't mean your body hasn't accommodated that with a big pelvic opening, you know? I'd at least want a second opinion.
