Hi everyone my name is Mel and i'm trying to see if anyone has had a VBA3C in either a public or private hospital within melbourne or surrounds?
I am in the south east of melbourne and have just found out I am expecting my fourth and last child but would like to try for a vaginal birth if possible.
I have private health insurance which im more than willing to use but if there is a public hospital which can accomodate a VBA3C then that might be a better option.
I have tossed up the idea of an independant midwife but can only really afford that if i did go public and maybe a doula if it were private.
fwiw I have gone into labour with my first child I got to 7cm but his heart rate started to dip on and off frequently so they did an emerg csec and found the cord to be around his neck. second and third bubs were elec csecs as I hadnt caught onto the idea of VBACing until I met a lovely lady at playgroup who had one herself! so now im reading up about it and basically trying to get as much knowledge as i can to help with getting a vbac for this bub.
Thanks!

Hiya
I couldnt help notice the discussion on vbacing after a 3rd csection i am interested in finding a hospital myself that could be open to the idea of allowing myself to have a trial of labour. I am not pregnant but am entertaining the idea of having another child without having to go under the knife again!
could anyone PM any details on the OB's or hospitals they think are the best bet for it?

Approximately 3 out of 4 women will have a successful VBAC however as I am sure you know there are some schools of thought that after several C/S the risk is too high.

You will receive a lot of anecdotes regarding successful VBAC 2,3 and 4 but there is so much more to the decision than just hearing about other people's successes.

Your likelihood of a successful VBAC3 depends on your history so fronting up to a new caregiver not armed with the information about your previous C/S will not be helpful when making a decision to encourage it or not.

There really does need to be some criteria met before many Obstetricians will encourage/support your VBAC3.
* Your previous C/S history is important...why did you have them?  What did your lower segment/uterus and old scarring look like and was there any visible tearing last time?

Most caregivers will look at your age, your BMI, the size of your baby, whether you are post dates and whether there is just a short time frame since a previous pregnancy.
They will also be encouraged if you have no medical conditions pertaining to pregnancy such as no GD, no PE, no history of uterine surgery etc.

The large public hospital I worked at did not do VBAC3 even though it was probably one of the better equipped places to do so, there are many private hospitals that do not have the back up to provide the emergency care if it is necessary so whilst I really do encourage you to look and ask around I have to say that it is uncommon for an Obstetrician to be terribly keen although that does not mean a definite no.

I wish you well and hope you get the type of birth you wish for.
