Hello! This board is kind of quiet...
I had a emergency c-section with my daughter due to heart rate decels and cord issues. It was a neccessary surgery and it got her out safely. That being said, I still regret not being able to birth vaginally. I still think about it over a year later and that fear is leaking into my thoughts of a new pregnancy. I refuse to have an elective c-section. However, there is a tight ban in all hospitals in my area for VBAC's. I've contacted our local I-Can group and will be going to the meeting in a couple weeks. There are a few doctors that are more open to providing a VBAC but none of them openly support them.
Sadly, my OB has already told me that I am not a good candidate. I still need to get the medical records so I can see what he's basing his opinion off of. The good news, I found another doctor who has done all of Michelle Duggar's VBAC's so I plan on seeing them for the new pregnancy (when it happens).
Any other tips/tricks? How should I approach the conversation of a VBAC and not let them turn me down?
