Question
Im asking about the possibility to find a vbac provider in cairo,as im pregnant and i had 2 previous c sections (6 and 4 years ago) with no true need for c-section.

Answer
Heba

I am sorry about your previous 2 Cesareans.
Unfortunately only women who had one Ceasrean can have a trial for VBAC. Risks are higher for the baby and mother with 2 previos Cesareans or more especially uterine rupture. That is why it is advisable to have your next delivery planned 2 weeks earlier than your due date. Furthermore, the possibility of what is known as placenta accreta is higher-a risky condition- and this is another reason that you should plan your delivery in a well eqipped hospital with a good Obstetrician.

Good Luck

I can answer questions about antenatal care, medical problems associated with pregnancy, labor and delivery and postpartum care.

Experience

Currently I am working as a Professor of Obstetrics gynecology, Menofyia University, Egypt. Since 1987, I worked in many university and private hospitals with a high load of pregnant population averaging 7-9,000 deliveries/year. This exposed me to all problems associated with pregnancy, labor and delivery. I had my doctorate degree in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1996 in the use of Doppler ultrasound in high risk pregnancies.
