VBAC or not to VBAC?


I have never been thrilled with a repeat c-section but have been trying to make the best of it even though deep down I knew it wasn't ok. At almost 36 weeks pregnant, I have followed my gut and my heart and switched providers to one that will allow me to attempt a vbac. Even though some may think I'm crazy (my husband included!), I have been able to make this decision with the support of some great family and friends, as well as the awesome ladies of the Evansville ICAN chapter and the Evansville Birth Network.

While I realize that this may be an unpopular decision for some and that it may ultimately end up with another c-section, I had to do this for my personal well-being. I knew that if I just subjected myself to another c-section without even trying for a vaginal birth, I would never truly be ok again. I am so excited to begin this new journey in my pregnancy!


  1. Good luck, Holly! VBACs are totally doable in the right situation, and I hope your 2nd delivery is smooth and results in a healthy & happy baby... and momma! :)

  2. Good luck. I see nothing wrong with it as it's ultimately YOUR body and YOUR decisions.


I love comments so leave me some love!
