I had a vbac with my 2nd. I think the best thing to do before you decide either way is discuss your options with your dr. I vbac'ed with my middle baby successfully. I did have to deliver with my high risk dr though because our local hospital doesn't do vbac's. The recovery is insanely easy from a vaginal delivery. I mean i was up and walking around normally within an hour compared to the 2 weeks it took me to walk normally with my c-sections.
If you have to do a c-section, of course it's not the end of the world, but looking into vbacs is worth it IMO.
I did a vbac. It was hard but SO worth it. So much better than having a csection. Labor is no fun but getting to be with your baby the whole time after birth is beautiful. Plus after I had my daughter a few hours later I was up walking around with her. Unlike my csection. Please research . That's what I did and made me want to do one even more. Good luck

Where is Beavortown? I live in Ottawa County, I can't get a VBAC unless I go to Grand Rapids. ):
If you really want it just keep telling yourself and preparing as if its written in stone. If for some reason it doesnt happen weather it be you simply changing your mind or medical just know that you did everything possible!
