I am currently 18 weeks pregnant with my second child. My first child is 2 years old and was delivered by emergency c-section. When planning my second pregnancy I wanted to go for a VBAC so I found a good doctor and got set up to do it that way but now I'm having second thoughts.
I think I've probably changed my mind a thousand times so I wanted to get the perspective from women who have actually made this decision. Though I really wanted to have the regular birthing experience and actually have the chance to remember the birth of my second child, the one percent rupture rate is nagging at the back of my mind. The best advice I've gotten so far was from my doctor. He told me that if in the worst case scenario I was to rupture would I still be okay with the decision I had made, and if I can answer that question with a yes I have no reason not to try a VBAC.
