Chiropractic Woodbury MN Vbac

Many women believe that the only safe choice after a cesarean is another cesarean. Social pressure plays a huge role in a woman's decision making process and greatly influenced by myths about vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). The result is a 90% repeat cesarean rate in America despite the fact that most women are candidates for VBAC in Woodbury MN and most VBAC's are successful.

What are the benefits of having a VBAC in Woodbury MN?

A successful VBAC allows you to avoid major abdominal surgery and the risks associated with it. These include a higher risk of excessive bleeding, which can lead to a blood transfusion or even a hysterectomy in rare cases, as well as a higher risk of developing certain infections and other organ damage during the procedure. All of the potential complications of major abdominal surgery increase with each cesarean delivery because the scarring can make each procedure technically more difficult.

There will be a shorter recovery time. You'll have a shorter hospital stay after a VBAC than you would after a repeat C-section. Avoiding surgery will help your energy and stamina return more quickly, as well as reduce the expense of childbirth.

If you plan to have more children, VBAC might help you avoid the risks of multiple cesarean deliveries. Every c-section you have increases your risk in future pregnancies of placenta previa and placenta accreta, in which the placenta implants too deeply and doesn't separate properly at delivery. These conditions can result in life-threatening bleeding and a hysterectomy.

What would make me a good candidate for a VBAC?

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, you're a good candidate for a vaginal birth after a c-section if you meet, but NOT limited to the following criteria:

  • Your previous cesarean incision was a low-transverse uterine incision (which is horizontal) rather than a vertical incision in your upper uterus (known as a "classical" incision) or T-shaped, which would put you at higher risk for uterine rupture. (Note that the type of scar on your belly may not match the one on your uterus.)
  • You've never had any other extensive uterine surgery, such as a myomectomy to remove fibroids.
  • You've never had a uterine rupture.
  • You have no medical condition or obstetric problem (such as a placenta previa or a large fibroid) that would make a vaginal delivery risky.
  • Chiropractic Care; When pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby and may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother's ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Regular chiropractic care can also provide a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery for both mother and baby. It stimulates the nervous system to enable proper functioning of your reproductive organs, supporting the needs of your baby throughout pregnancy and during delivery.

Please note, every hospital has developed their own definitions producing differing VBAC protocols and requirements. We encourage every woman to understand the risks, benefits, and alternatives to these procedures so that they can make fully informed decisions.
