My doctor signed off for me having a VBA2C, but at the last minute pressured me into a cesarean because of my baby’s size. He convinced me I wouldn’t be able to do it, but didn’t warn me about the dangers of having a 3rd surgery.

I ended up hospitalized & hooked up to a wound vac machine due to complications. I feel having a vaginal birth would have been less riskier & my doctor failed me.

Thank you for sharing your story with us, Malina. Congratulations on your new addition!
