How about something like, "My doctor and I have decided that scheduling a C section is the best option for this birth given my medical history." Hopefully that will stop the probing questions, but if they push further you always have the right to say that basically it's none of their business (or you're "uncomfortable talking about the details" with them... )


G/L with your upcoming birth!

I elected to have a CS, and was getting a lot of comments about it.

welcome to the board and congrats on expecting again. I can so relate to your question of how to deal with rude people and their questions about VBAC.

I personally did wait till the very last minute to have a scheduled c-section, but even that wasn't good enough for some people.

In my opinion your best bet is to just not discuss it with them you just can't win, some say you are taking unnecessary risks by attempting a VBAC and others say that you are taking to big a risk with having a scheduled c-section. If you do tell them that it is your risk and you have decided on the birth that you are most comfortable with the risks of. Both c-section and VBAC have risks it all depends on how you look at the stats and how you read the studies, its all up to interpretation in my opinion. It never does hurt to get a second opinion, I did, and go with you gut.

Best wishes to you and I hope you have a very uneventful birth and recovery.

Keep us posted,

Dionne
