no vaginal after c section?

Wed, 09-24-2008 - 3:00pm

went to dr apt today.and she seems to be pushing me to have a c section.my dd is allmost 12 yrs old and i had her with c section,bcause she was breech.so she explained to me that my uterus could tear in that spot .and that if i want to try to go vaginal we could just watch what my cervix does.should i take the chance?how risky is this?she also said that if i go vaginal her parnter may have to deliver if shes in clinics.... so it kinda made me feel like she was pushing the c section so it could be "schedualed" and convienient for her! obviously i would rather vaginal and not have the extra pain and recovery that comes from a surgery delivery,especially at my age.yikes

her nurse is also so snappy and bitchy,..and she wont be delivering in the hospital that i wanted and am familiar with grrrr maybe i should just swich docs,maybe i could transfer all my tests ect..am i being a baby?

ps getting amnio on oct 3rd..... soooo scared ! thanks for listening!!Get your free online pregnancy calendar from WhatToExpect.com

VBAC (vaginal birth after C section) definitely comes with risks. Her job is to weigh the risks and advise you. It sounds like she's not telling you definitely "no", but she's not giving you a glowing green light, either. Sounds appropriate.

What are you disagreeing so strongly about?

It is true what her doctor's responsibility is. And, it isn't for US to determine what her risks are. Her doctor didn't say she could not do a VBAC, either.

If OP has questions about her own risks, she should talk to her doctor more so she's comfortable with what her doctor's saying and why?

ok guys,i went to the drs office today and sighned the release papers to be sent to my old dr(who delivered my dd) 12 yrs ago.i didnt make the decision bcause of her vbac views.as i said her nurses are kinda rude and she is delivering in a hospital i dont want to deliver in. i feel much better and im only 3 mos so its not like im pulling out of a 8mo relationship with an ob/gyn.


i did some research on vbacs and i just had never even thought it would be a danger.but i do see where it could be.sooooo i have an apt with old

There are absolutely risks involved with a VBAC, though a uterine rupture is rare.
