VBAC OR CAE­SAREAN

Your Pregnancy - - Letters -

I had to have an emer­gency cae­sarean sec­tion with my son two years ago. When I fell preg­nant this time, I en­quired about a trail of labour af­ter cae­sarean (TOLAC). My gy­nae­col­o­gist was hes­i­tant at first, but has al­lowed me to try for a vagi­nal birth af­ter cae­sarean. I’ve faced a lot of scep­ti­cism from peo­ple and have of­ten won­dered if I’m do­ing the right thing, but af­ter read­ing Your Preg­nancy mag­a­zine and the real life sto­ries, I feel so en­cour­aged to do this! I be­lieve it doesn’t mat­ter how a baby is born, whether it’s a nat­u­ral de­liv­ery or C-sec­tion, as long as the baby en­ters the world safely. Thank you for the pos­i­tive ar­ti­cles and in­spir­ing sto­ries that have al­ways left me feel­ing so up­lifted through­out my preg­nancy! BETH LOUW, KWAZULU-NATAL
