Hello, just wondering if anyone can suggest a VBAC forum anywhere. I would like to read as many experiences as I can. My first delivery was a Cesarean due to breech presentation. I am sort of hoping to go VBAC this time for recovery reasons but am lacking the confidence to deliver naturally. This is awful as I was so looking forward to it last time, for some strange reason. Thank you. Perhaps it could added to the topics.

Sorry, I meant to type 'perhaps it could be added to the topics'.

Hi Karen. I'm not much help really with knowing a VBAC forum, but I do know a woman who had a successful VBAC. Her first was an emergency c-section and her second she was able to deliver v____ally. She told me something quite interesting. She said that a VBAC is actually far less risky than docs make it out to be. She said that more harm to the baby is posed doing amniocentisis than a VBAC. Does you doc or hospital allow VBACs? I had a c-section in August also due to breech presentation (unfortunately, my baby was stillborn because her cord was wrapped 3 times around her neck). I too am interested in a VBAC, although probably not on my next pregnancy simply because of what happened this last time (was almost 41 weeks), but possibly further down the road. Good luck!

Oh my goodness I'm so sorry to hear that. I understand that the risks are minimal and the hospital does allow VBAC. They will monitor the labour closely. I think I just need to hear others' stories to help me feel that more confident. My concerns are so trivial compared to what you have had to deal with, I wish you all the very best and thank you for your reply.

There is a lot of info out there. I have only heard positive things about women who do this. But you need to find a hospital or doc who support this, because many (too many do not) so check out hospital policy. I also have a friend who had her breech baby v____ally. She just had to find the right birth center who are still trained in such birth. I was breech when I was born! Good luck!!
