I had my heart set on a VBAC for baby two and was so confident but as due date approached, baby was found to be breech. I tried all I could to get bub’s head down, even a successful ECV.
At 40+4, my midwife checked and bub was breech again. The hospital wouldn’t take me if bub presented breech in labour. I was distraught and absolutely, soul crushingly devastated. Was it my fault? Did I not believe hard enough?
I couldn’t bare any more heart ache so my husband and I chose a date to have a repeat caesarean. My heart still aches from time to time as I feel like have been robbed but I am happy knowing that I have a beautiful baby girl and little sister to my daughter.
