Iv had 2 c sections one emergancy and one planned, the planned one was because i was told my baby would by over 10 pounds but was 6.5 at birth. I would love to give birth natural this time but am not sure if its the right thing to do. Would love to know what you think.

I had 2 c-sections and was 'advised' that another c-section was the best course of action. I was happy with this so did not really look into a vbac but when I investigated vbacs after 2 c-sections then they do happen and read one story about a woman who had a home birth after 2 c-sections. However I would still choose a c-section even after my research. The most important thing to me was the safety of myself and my baby and a planned c-section seemed the best course of action. I occasionally have pangs of regret that I have never been in labour but I have 3 healthy children who have a healthy mother so what more could I ask for.

I had one after 2 c-sections but only because number 3 came so quickly and ahead of my planned elcs date. Apparently this was 'unusual'. To be absolutely honest I think I recovered more quickly from the sections than the stitching and piles caused by natural delivery but I don't really have any regrets about any of my births. Good luck!
