I live in a small city that only has two hospitals ... today I went to my previous doctor and told me that after having a c section with my first baby I won't be able to have a vaginal delivary with this only because those are the rules from the hospital supposable is like a higher risk or something ... my husband was kind of upset he is saying that is probably that the doctor make more money with a c section than a natural ... I am so confuse right now I don't know if I should change doc or not we only have do docs here in town that would this ... but since I am short and small and the baby is measuring about a week bigger I know that maybe I would have a c section anyways... my first baby was a c section only because he was wrap with his cord on his neck... .I'm so confuse....
It is the policy of some hospitals and doctors to not do VBAC, because there are increased risks. If you think your Dr is lying call the hospital and ask what there policy is. You can try to find another hospital and dr that will allow it, but it could involve traveling.
It's because most consider a vbac a risk. There are hospitals and dr's that will let you try for a vbac, but you might have to travel a bit.
If I want to try for vbac I would have to go an hour away. but to me I'd rather just have another c-section. My body doesn't do what it should in labor. idk my recovery was faster than my friends vag delivery. lol
you have options but it'll involve time and most likely traveling. I had the same thing, the cord was wrapped around my 1st's neck so she was emerg. csect, so the next dr told me repeat csect and the hosp wouldn't let her try for a vbac, my 3rd is gonna be vbac. I was told since the cord was wrapped it's not an automatic csect "reason" esp for a 2nd. And my 1st was crowning, she was 8lbs 9oz so I doubt size has to do with it, maybe more like pelvic bone too small if anything. good luck.
Its not a rule anymore and vbacs are common. The only time Ive heard of potential risks is if the way they cut you outside is in a different direction than they give you inisde. In which case all they have to do is get your medical records. C sections fill hospital beds its cheaper to cut and release than to have a woman labor for hours.
