Allah Granted my VBA2C!


Assalamu Alaikum,
A very quick post to let you know that Allah (Swt), the One who is The Most Merciful, the One who answered all your duas for me granted me the VBA2C on Monday 1st March 2010. Alhamdulillah, I gave birth naturally after having had two c-sections and I birthed my son in water! lol
I will inshaAllah type up my birth story and email it to you when I get a chance. I want other women to know that they shouldn’t fall for what the NHS tells them. I was told that I would never be given the chance to have a natural birth because I had crossed the ‘2 caesareans’ mark. But then I discovered a whole host of women who have had natural deliveries after 2, 3 and 4 c-sections. It can be done. And know that whatever test you are going through sisters, the power of dua can turn anything around! When you read my birth story – you’ll see what I mean! SubhanAllah! Allahu Akbar!
May Allah reward you all for taking out the time to make dua for me. And may He bless each and every one of you in the best of ways. Ameen.
Will email the birth story soon – please feel free to circulate it around as a means of giving courage to others.

  1. Barakallahu feeki my dear sis, i have been looking up your blog everyday since your last post. You can’t imagine just how much courage you have given me. I have two sons, both by emergency caesarean, and just like in your case there was unnecessary and untimely intervention by the doctor,nurses etc. It has left me feeling quite scared to have another baby.

    I am not pregnant again yet, but I do want to try for a VBA2C next time Insha Allah. I am waiting to hear your birth story.

  18. I had a vbac with my second child. most of the doctors in the US did not support this.

    subhanallah, with dua, Allah guided me to a group of ppl .. an organization called ICAN in the US..that help and support eachother in the quest for vbac.

    and alhamdulilah i found and went w/ a doctor who supported vbac. i switched to this dr in the last month of pregnancy!
    and he was a man! which was not something i was really comfortable with. and subhanallah guess who delivered the baby? A woman 🙂

    he was like an angel who stood in the way of the idiots who wanted to cut me up cuz i wasnt reaching 10 cm SOON ENOUGH FOR THEM. 🙂

    • MashaAllah! So you must know that I am still buzzing after 3 weeks! lol

      Yes, I came across ICAN. Great organisation.

  19. As salaamu ‘alaikum wa RahmatULLAHI wa Barakatuhu Sis!

    Baarakallaahu laka fil-mauhoobi laka, wa shakartal-waahiba, wa balagha ashuddahu, wa ruziqta birrahu.

    “May ALLAH bless you with HIS gift to you, and may you (the new parent) give thanks, may the child reach the maturity of years, and may you be granted its righteousness.”

    MashaALLAH, your story inspires me to try VBAC too! Not that I’m expecting, lol, but you never know. Tell R that M says “Salaam and love you and that she really enjoyed the letter and loved the heart so much before her little sis got to it”.

    Take care,
    wa salaam,

    • Ws wr wb

      Ameen sis! Yay! I did it! Alhamdulillah. You go for that VBAC sis! Told R what M said and she was beaming!!!

  20. I was just doing a Random search on google where i found your. quite interesting. Read abt Normal delivery after the c-section.
    I went through normal delivery in july but to a still born. I am sorry if I am upsetting you in any way but i want peace. I want someone to tell me what did i do wrong that Allah gave me such big punishment.

    • May Allah make things easy for you. This is not a punishment from Allah but a test from Him subhanaAllah. When Allah takes something away from us – it is a means of purification and a means of us turning to Him and achieving greater closeness to Him. Keep turning to Him and insha’Allah you will find your comfort there.

  21. Salam,
    Congrats on your VBA2C. Subhan Allah! I have had 2 children, both by c-section. My second c-sectionwas just a few months ago. Unless Allah wills otherwise, I hope that I will not get pregnant again for another 3-4 years to allow my uterus to heal and to focus on my 2 children. I found a hospital close to where I live that allows VBAC after 2 c-sections. I now have hope that my next child, insha allah, could be delivered vaginally. But, I am afraid of uterine rupture. I read a terrifying story online of a woman who tried a VBA2C and her uterus ruptured and her baby was left with permanent brain damage. When you were pregnant with your third child, what did you do to calm your fears about uterine rupture? Can you send me some duas that I could say to ask Allah to give me a natural birth if I ever get pregnant again? I think we just have to trust in Allah. I have very bad emotional reactions to my cesareans and I am glad to know that other women feel the same way. I guess I am not crazy.
