I never did like people telling me "This is a SUPPORT board" whenever I presented unappreciated facts. (Note that a recent post was not facts, so much as chastisement and berating)
But we may be overdue for a serious talk about "How far is too far?" to go for a VBAC. I'm not talking distance, but obsticles and counterindications. I don't like the reasoning of "I'll just schedule late, and try to VBAC if I go into labor" (i.e. irrelevant coin toss) but I'll have to admit that if I was carrying in breach position or multiples, I'd probably go with the c-section with minimal regrets. I know such babies can often be delivered vaginally, but if I can't find a doctor who routinely does that, I would question whether (S)HE could do it.
Lots of people are also inclined to have a c-section when the birth has to be moved up, rather than an induction, and I'll admit to a lot of validation in that.
Does anyone (especially someone for whom it's not hypothetical right now) want/need to hash this out in general or specific terms?
