Hi this will be DC3 and this is what we are aiming for. I would really love to hear that this has been possible for some women.

I am ready for a fight if needs be as this is the last chance for me

I had vbac2 somewhere else and they wouldn't allow water birth. My first choice hosp none of the consultants would support me. Moved hosp to find consultant who would 'let' me. I had had two sections previously and it was my second natural delivery after a section so it might be different to your situation. Were your first two sections? Or one section and one VBAC?

Without being patronising, do you think that obstetricians are just sitting around desperate to get women to agree to have sections because they are bored or need the practice? With 2 previous sections you have a significant risk of uterine rupture, which can be dangerous (or fatal) to you and the baby. There is also a much higher risk of emergency section.

Only you can answer this but what is more important to you - the birth experience or the safety of your unborn child? If you decide to really push for a VBAC after 2 sections then you must acknowledge that you are choosing the first over the second.
