Re: Very interesting pro-VBAC blog post
I just saw a distant cousin who just had her second baby by scheduled RCS. Her incision got infected and she had to stay in the hospital an extra week, and subsequently she wasn't able to establish BFing. I'm grateful that my more knowledgeable friends educated me about the real risks before I signed up for a RCS. Not that there aren't risks either way, but it's a shame that people wrongly believe that the VBAC is so dangerous, whereas the RCS isn't. My mom's friend told her that the "risk of death" with a VBAC was 2%! I was like, um, mom, do you really think I would take a 2% chance of dying just to have a vaginal birth?
