Just to let you know that I had a successful VBAC 4 days ago to bring Lydia Mary Kate into the world. I had a 3rd degree tear which needed stitching in theatre but even with that my recovery has been so much better than with my CS.
I am still a little in shock because my labour was very fast compared to first time. My CS was following 18 hours of labour, whereas the whole thing this time was 4 hours 23 minutes.
To anyone wondering whether or not to go for a VBAC, I can thoroughly recommend it
