I am just wondering how many of you went on to have another section 2nd time round. I know that it is possible to have natural birth after having a section, but I get the impression that it's more likely I will have one again. I am half expecting to have one, given the fact that I had a previous section and the possible risk of having a seizure during labour (I have epilepsy) although that wasn't really thought of a problem last time, it wasn't the reason I had to have cesarean.
Thanks in advance!!!
I had "an emergency" one last time due to a failed induction and am opting for an elective one this time around.
I had an emergency section last time, so I think I'm going to opt for an elective this time. It's only 6 months since my last one so I don't think I'd be allowed have a VBAC incase my scar ruptured.
my first baby was natural and 2nd was emergency section this time round consultant is all on for a vbac and all goin well ill have one, wasn't given a "choice" as such on account of first bein fine.
re scar rupture i was afraid of this happening too but there is apparently only a very very small chance of it happening and there will be just the yr between my 2.
The rate of successful VBAC is between 50 and 75%. So if you opt for a VBAC there is more than a 50:50 chance you will deliver vaginally.
I had a section for breech first time round
Had my new baby almost 4 weeks ago, went into labour myself 5days overdue and failed to progress beyond 5cms so after an attempt at a slow induction it ended in emergency section.
Would opt for an elective section if I ever have another baby
Re elective section how obliging are they about having one?
Just curiousity really, i was public in the coombe and had an emergency section. Won't be ttc for a year or so yet but it has been something i've thought about, whether i'd try and get an elective section or go for a vbac.
I'm private and my consultant had no issues with it, also there will be 15 months between my 2. I think it depends on the conultant tbh as some might encourage a vbac. At the end of the day, the insurance company will be paying for it, so I dont think he had any issues with that.
My consultant told me that I have a 60% chance of a vbac this time, last time was a planned section because he was breech. So fingers crossed I'll be one of the 60%
Just after my emergency section (failure to progress, I had a high temp also) the registrar who performed the op said I would have an 80% chance of vaginal birth if I chose to go again. Fast forward a year and a half and my consultant in the semi private clinic has given me a 60% chance. I wonder where my extra 20% has gone??
