1. I was able to have a VBAC, but I had certain perimeters to try within, though I tore badly, got shock from losing a lot of blood, and got an infection, and nearly died, so sometimes it’s not worth it! We had a lot of miracles for the whole birth but I honestly don’t know about next time. As God leads, listening very carefully to Him and doctors. I did look back on the records and discovered that my first baby’s head was 2cm bigger than my 2nd baby’s head and there was no way I was pushing her out.

    Thank you! I had an emergency c-section with my bub and while I don’t feel traumatised I do feel like I need to try for a natural birth again – if only because I feel like it helped me establish breast feeding. I didn’t even know a trial of labour before a second C was a thing. You are so right – the best birth results in a beautiful living baby 🙂

    • I hope that, whenever the time comes, you are able to come to a good decision for both you and your baby. My first did not nurse for the first three weeks, but my second baby took to it right away and we had absolutely no issues other than a strong suck reflex (we ended up giving him a paci as soon as we got home from the hospital and it worked like a charm). I think with 2nd babies, you are just so much more confident in everything!
