Hi all!

I was a member of this board while I was pregnant with my 2nd child, my VBAC attempt baby.

It's great that you're researching your choices before you get pregnant. Having two c/s isn't much different than having one c/s and vbacing, according to acog. The issue is whether your dr is ok with it. You've had two c/s for different reasons and your body "proved itself. "
You may want to talk to your dr about your vbac options. If your dr isn't willing to let you vbac without a good reason, find another dr or mw. I had my vbac baby in a water birth at a free standing birth center after having my others in a hospital with a dr. Going with my mw was the best decision I could have made. Research the different choices in your area and see what works best for you.
Let us know what you find out. Good luck!

It's so sad that midwifery is outlawed in your state! Let us know what you find out. Good Luck!

Well midwifery isn't outlawed, just midwifery for VBAC patients.
