    Hi every one. Would love some good stories for anyone that’s had a vbac.

    Ended in emergency c section 5 years ago. Got to 9 1/2 cm dilated and he went low on oxygen so needed out quickly. They won’t induce me this time because of the risk of rupturing my scar so doing a stretch and sweep tomorrow morning. I’ll be only 37 weeks. I am desperate to have a natural labour and hate the thought of another c section specially with a 5 year old to look after but they have booked me in for a c section on the 11th (38+3) he’s already showing to be quite big. ☹️

    Would just love some reassurance and positive vibes. Getting soo nervous and scared now and have no one else that understands. They all say go for a c section so much better blah blah blah! I don’t want to hear that! I want the chance.

    Thank you for reading my rant!
