My V.B.A.C. was a complete success. I was 41 weeks when I was induced. My O.B. decided to judiciously use Pitocin to bring about labor, and I was in labor for 12 hours, after which I gave birth to a healthy 9 pound 8 ounce baby boy. And it was a complete success for us. It wasn't without difficulties, but as far as a V.B.A.C. goes, it was a very satisfying and rewarding experience. I was back home within 48 hours and the baby and myself were in great health. If you've had a C-section before hand, it can be tough; you may mourn the experience of a vaginal birth. And V.B.A.C., with or without drugs, is very, very possible. I would just urge any parent considering V.B.A.C. to do your research and to find an O.B. that will truly support you on your journey. You could also use the assistance of a doula who will support you both with V.B.A.C. or also with H.B.A.C., which is a home birth after Caesarean. But all in all, it's not as complicated as people may think it is.
