I am under 5' 3 and had my first child by c-section because he was not descending into the birth canal, and I failed to progress past 4-5 centimeters even though my water had broken hours before. My son was 9' 11 when he was born, and the doctor who performed my c-section advised me to always have my babies by c-section, with no explanation other than that my son would not fit through my pelvis. I am 4 months pregnant now and really wanting to try for a VBAC. I am with midwives and am now doing research about VBACs, and we are going to look at my post operative report during my next check up. Just wondering if anyone was in the same boat that I am now, and if you had a successful VBAC, even with a large baby?
