VBAC after C-section due to breech

Long story short
DS - labour 4 hours 21 mins. Waters broke and straight into contractions 2 mins apart.
DD - breech position. c-section at 39+1. but was in hospital from 32w with threatened pre-term labour and they wouldnt let me go home due to 1st labour being so quick and DD in breech.
So my questions are -
1. Do you think I would class as a high risk pregnancy if I fell pg again?
2. Do you think I would be able to try for a VBAC (so long as baby isnt breech again).
We are trying to conceive again and Im really hoping I can have the next baby at the same hospital that my other 2 were born, but it falls outside of my area (as it did when DD was born).
Do you think a VBAC is possible, and do you think my hospital would take me due to wanting to try a VBAC after caesar etc..
would appreciate any thoughts. Ive never really had to think about this stuff before.

I can't answer #1 (I'm thinking no though), but I can answer #2.
I had dd3 via breech vbac 5 months ago. While they were very supportive of the vbac, they weren't too confident of the breech vaginal birth. I had all odds in my favour for the vbac due to my first 2 babies born vaginally. #3 was (an unecessary) c/s due to breech.
You will be able to have a vbac, especially since you had your first via vaginal birth. I don't see why they would deny you. If you're determined to have a vbac, go for it.
My birth story is in my sig if you're after a positive vbac story

I am due to give birth soon and aiming for a vbac too. My story is very much like yours.
DD1: vaginal birth after waters broke at 38 weeks.
DD2: c-section due to breech position... Despite trying everything to get her to turn around, including attempted ECV.
DD3: due in early March. Hoping for water birth... Which was what I wanted for my first two babies. I have the support of the ob and midwives at my hospital because I have given birth before and am low risk. All of my history is in their files, so they know me well. It was actually the ob who did the c-section who suggested I have a vbac for my third baby. I actually don't live near this hospital anymore either. The hospital nearest to me is in the country and are not able to offer me a vbac, even though they would like to, so I am travelling back to my old home town at about 38 weeks to relax, visit friends and wait for bub to arrive.
I think that the main thing is that you find a hospital that supports your decision to try for a vbac.
I don't know if you would be classed as high risk, but I doubt it. I know women who have birthed all their kids in less than two hours and they have not been classed as high risk.

I looked into this for my SIL and think it was lower risks to have a VBAC than a repeat csection. And her ob and midwife agreed so she had a gorgeous water birth .
