Good news for the VBAC!

When I initially did a search to try to find a community that informed women about the high percentages of cesareans, often unnecessary, and supported those of us who feel we have been placed among that percentage through mainstream medical care, I found a shocking amount of comments and posts where women had sadly resigned themselves to future cesareans, sometimes even stating that a doctor had informed them of such.



I work with the holisitc circle, and among that paradigm we strongly believe that a woman who has previously had a cesarean is still fully capable of birthing a child vaginally in the future. It is nice to see that medicine is supporting this.

The second article brings up an interesting argument about trust between the patient and the care giver. How was the decision to have a cesarean presented to you? Did you feel fully involved and informed? Did you, and do you now, trust your care provider?

Here is a few other clips for Dana, as a congrats on the decision to try for a second! Understandably the decision to try for another baby is always a bit nervous, but there are Many! medical professionals of different backgrounds that would stand up and proudly say that a VBAC doesn't need to be the source of that fear. I agree with what you mentioned in your previous post about working through your fears (particularly in regards to childbirth), but have always felt knowledge is a great way to calm my fears.
