Have you had a VBAC?
Jillian asked me to share with you my experience having a VBAC because, well, it isn’t too common. Yet, for me, a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) was an answer to prayer. Despite how common a caesarean is today — 1 in 3 women will have one — it is major surgery with serious risks to you and your baby. If you’re looking for another option, read on.Many women who have had caesarean deliveries aren’t aware that there is an alternative to a repeat C-section. They simply believe that once you’ve had a caesarean there’s no going back. According to the American Pregnancy Association, 90% of women who have previously undergone a caesarean delivery are eligible for a vaginal birth. That means that if you have had a C-section and wish to attempt a vaginal delivery, there’s a good chance you can.
Because “once a C-section” doesn’t mean “always a C-section”!
Come by and join the conversation! I’d love to answer any questions you might have about VBACs!
Linking up to these lovely parties.
