I had a complicated c-section they had to make my cut twice the length of a normal one because of my baby's postion, I almost bled to death and ended up with a trapped pool of infected blood left inside my uterus, I had a 2 week stay in the hospital. The Dr. also wants me to have another section because of the complications i had the first time! i never want to go through that again and would love to have a v-bac, I've tried and tried researching about my sistuation and like u have found nothing. I'm hoping to find a dr. willing to let me try a v-bac before i get pregnant again. I really don't want another c-section, I researched that every baby is different and sometimes it depends on the baby more than the mother, the position and progress. I'm really at a lost of what i should do a scheduled section or try a v-bac? Hope u find some info, & would to love to hear more stories from people in simular situations!

I had an emergency c section first time around due to the baby being distressed. It all went well. Second time around I was offered both choices. I chose the section again. My SPD was worse second time around, couldnt walk etc so couldnt imagine giving birth etc. Went in for a planned section (although told I was a very good candiate for a vbac) and had my baby. All was well with her but I bled heavily due to my old scar tearing and the surgeon said it was a good job I had chosen the section as I would have bled heavily during labour and needed emergency section. It took them two hours to stitch me up and stop the bleeding, leaving three drains in. I know this isnt the norm but it scared me that I was classed as low risk for complications and this happened after a normal straight forward emergency section. Surgeon said if I were to have another section I would probably need a hysterectomy due to the damage from my first sectio
