Expecting number 3 - one normal one c-section so far what are the chances of a normal delivery with number 3?

Hello.

I am 29 weeks Pg with number 3. I had a normal birth with DD1 but her cord was around her neck and had an episotomy. With DD2 i had a C-section due to DD2 being Frank breech. I was booked into an elective C-section but went into to labour early and ended having one early just over 37 weeks. I am wanting to try for a normal delivery this time is there anything that I can be doing now to help prepare for a natural birth? I have asked my drs and they have said they will let me try but cant get much more info out of them than that at this stage.

Thanks

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, YOu have a very good chance of having a natural birth this time. You need to try to be as fit as possible and not get too tired when you are near term so that you are able to cope better wiht the labour. More than likely you will labour well and be ready to have the baby quite quickly. Best wishes, Alex.
