Are they all VBAC's?

I have sucessfully had a VBAC with my DS and now wondering if all future pregnancies would be considered VBAC's.

Yes, they will. You will always be considered a vaginal birth after cesarean - having a VBAC doesn't discount the scar on your uterus unfortunately.

Thus. But they were much more laid back with my 2nd vaginal delivery.

Yes, but many providers treat you as less high risk after a successful vbac. However, my midwife learned the hard way that there is still a risk of placenta issues years later; she agreed to take a client of one of her fellow midwives who was having her 4th or 5th vaginal birth after her primary csection, and the mom had an undiagnosed placenta accreta at the original surgery site and lost a lot of blood after the birth. Everything turned out okay; they transferred from the birth center and mom and baby were fine, but it was super scary.

Unfortunately yes. I've had one vbac, and am pregnant with baby #3. My hospital midwife team is able to take me on, but they have the same "label" on me. The good news is that the risk of rupture is nearly cut in half after one successful vbac.

Yep. You get to have a 2VBAC and a 3VBAC. I had a friend who had 2VBA3C.

It will always be a vbac. My ob said she considered me pretty much like a first-time pregnancy for my second vbac. However, the hospital did not consider me any different than with the first vbac.

One thing for your piece of mind is that every successful vbac, means less and less risk. The opposite is true with c-sections
