Chances of VBAC after Severe Preeclampsia

Hey Moms!

I am on my second baby my first is 4 year old boy and I am super excited. I had severe preeclampsia and had C-section at 31 weeks. So I really am excited about having a vaginal birth if possible. Anyone had preeclampsia in previous pregnancies?

I was borderline preeclampsia according to my doctor. When I moved and had another doctor review my records, i was indeed preeclampsia. I had a c section with my first, and a completely drug free vaginal birth with my second. I did not get preeclampsia the second time. Everyone is different. Every pregnancy is different. I am sure they will monitor you closely. Whatever happens, do what is right for baby and you. I was told way back when, if you have preeclampsia with the first, you will have it with each consecutive pregnancy. Glad I didn't have another round of it.
