Everyone has a different routine before their gyn appointment. Most people assume they know what their doctor prefers but it’s likely not what you think. Here are a few tips to help make your next visit more comfortable for you and your provider.
The new guidelines released by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) have resulted in our office getting quite a few calls from women asking if we do VBAC’s. I am happy to say, “Yes, we offer VBAC’s.”
It’s been a part of my personal philosophy for many years; a woman who can avoid having a repeat c-section, should. Obviously, there are cases where it can’t be avoided. Depending on the type and circumstance of the first c-section, it may be too risky to VBAC. For most women, however, a VBAC is an option.
It is important to talk to your practitioner early to make sure you are a good candidate. Keep in mind that the overall goal is to have a healthy baby and a healthy mom.
For your convenience, I will repost the revised ACOG guidelines. Talk to you soon!
