Hi!

This topic never really hit me until just now. When I had my first baby I was by myself. No emotional support, I was really afraid, and ended up having a c-section after getting stuck at 4 cms for a day and a half, and a blood pressure out of control.

I'm pregnant again, and my conditions are different. Not only I have a wonderful man by my side, but also his family, who cares for me in a way I would never expected, not because of anything weird, but just for the bad experience I had before.

I don't know if my emotional state had anything to do with me having a c-section, but I feel so at ease now, even though I would be takinc care of my toddler, a newborn, a man, my home and myself, but doesn;t really scare me. Does anybody think I should consider a vbac? does anybody have any experience on this?

By the way, I had zero blood pressure issues during my first pregnancy until the day I was admitted to the hospital

If you're pregnancy has been uncomplicated, there's no good reason that you can't consider having a vbac. May I ask how long it was after your c-section that you got pregnant?

When my oldest turned 13 months. I know I should have waited more, and it was actually the idea, but a mixed up with a medication and the pills was the result of my second pregnancy happening before we had planned it
