I don't even know if it is possible.

Re: VBAC after 3 C/s?

Yes, it is but finding someone who is willing is very hard. Especially in a hospital, almost impossible unless you walk in there with baby crowning.

There was a mom(I believe her story is on you tube, that had twins at home after 4 c-sec.

I know someone that helped someone after 4 c-sec.

On a vbac support board you can see many stories of after 3 c-sec.

I have had 2 C/s and gone on to have many home births.

I personally wouldn't try it and my doc specifically said not too after my 4th C/S. I had a uterine window - which was a thinning of my uterus and if I had gone into labor it probably would have ruptured there.

I did consider a VBA3C with #4, but for me personally I'm glad I didn't do it and I couldn't handle the risks...I'll currently 32 weeks with what will be my 5th C/S and I've just determined I'm ok with that.

All that said a homebirth MW was the only possible option and I couldn't find one anywhere close that had done a successful VBA3C. But, I know there are stories of people with successful ones...do lots of research and make sure your provider knows your personal history and has had success in this area.

Re: VBAC after 3 C/s?

I just recently had a VBA3C. My 1st 3 pregnancies were all C/S. It is possible, but finding a provider who is willing can be very hard. I would look for a local ICAN group and maybe some doulas that can help steer you towards a more VBAMC friendly Dr. Also something to consider is why you had a C/S to begin with. There maybe reasons already as to why t wouldn't be safe for you to try a VBAC. Good luck!!!
