With my first baby she was breech and had to have a C-section. I really wanted a natural delivery but doc. said c-section is better. Well, I am preg with my second and am 18 weeks. I asked my doc. about vbac and she says I am a candidate for a try. But....yesterday my ultrasound showed this baby is also breech. But this is still early, I guess. My question to you all is....had anyone had this happen twice? When does the baby usually turn (if they are going to)? AND, had anyone out there attempted a vbac with a breech baby? Thank you for any responses.

At 18 weeks, most babies are breech. When you get closer to your due date and the baby is breech,there are some things you can do to maybe get the baby to turn. I was breech 30 years ago and my mother had me v____ally. Doctors today are knife happy and love milking the insurance companies for C-sections. I am trying for a V-Bac!

A VBAC in itself is risky, and a v____al breech birth is risky, so wouldn't a VBAC with a breech baby be almost out of the question? I know this is just a TV show, but did anyone see the ER with the woman with breech baby who refused a C-section?

I saw the ER show you mentioned 3 weeks prior to giving birth to my breech baby via C-section. I tried all the at-home methods to turn him, and the doc tried to turn him at the hospital. He stayed breech and we went C-section. I know that ER episode was in the back of mind, that I was meant to see it, and not be so dang stubborn to see through a v____al birth. :-) although I will hope for a vbac with baby #2.

That ER scared the bejesus out of me. My 1st baby was breech, born via c-section. I opted for the repeat c-section for my 2nd baby. My first baby was 10 lbs, and they say 2nd babies are bigger, so my doc said that I was not really an ideal VBAC candidate. I actually never made it to my scheduled c-section date with my 2nd because my water broke at 38 weeks. I still had the c-section, just earlier than planned. My son was still 9 lbs at 38 weeks, so I am sure he could have been a whopper if I went ful term. Good luck to all!
