  • Hi! I desperatly wanted a VBAC with my 2nd, who will be 4 months old on Saturday, but in the end it did not work out and it turned out to be the best to have the 2nd c-section. I read all I could on the subject & spoke to my docs about it. They agreed I was a good canidate. The majority of my docs were on board 100%; one was a little ready to just schedule the surgery right away.

    If your docs agree, I'd say go for it! I was a little sad the night before my surgery & for a bit afterwards, but how can I stay upset when I the end result was my adorable baby boy with the dimple like his daddy and my eyes? No matter how they arrive, they are precious!

  • Thanks everyone! This eases my mind a ton! Maybe its worth a try. Here's hoping things will go well. If one child is breech are there any statistics that would make the second one have a higher possibility of it?

  • I am not sure of any actuak stats, but I know in my case my 1st was breech, but my 2nd was not. He was in position and even dropped a little towards the end.

  • I have never heard of there being a higher chance of your next baby being breech after the first one was but I have heard of A LOT of people having a breech baby and then having several babies after that without them being breech so I would say it probably doesn't matter. Good Luck
