Personally, for me, IDK why your dr would consider one unless it's medically ness.
I asked for one...NO I BEGGED for one with my first b/c we had twins and I'd been carrying around a stillborn for 3 months of my pregnancy and I didn't want to deliever a still born and our son. He wouldn't do it!!!! He calmly talked us into trying vaginally because it was the best option for us recovery wise.
Thankfully, I had amazing nurses who said if I wanted a c/s I could have one and they could make it happen. They understood my situation and completely understood me not wanting to deliver both of them.
We chose to go ahead and try vaginally, our son was coming out first, and he had complications and we ended up in a c/s anyways, which honestly I'm glad we did. I think it would have been to emotionally scaring to deliver our stillborn Matthew. BUT, if we had a DIFFERANT situation, I would have tried a little harder to have him vaginally.
Now going on #3 c/s I REALLY want a VBAC, I feel like I missed out on "giving birth" even 7 years later. I'm going to a pretty VBAC friendly hospital, so I'm hoping to go into labor on my own before my c/s date. If I do, I'm hoping to convince the nurses to let me labor a while before they call my dr. and hopefully I'll be far enough along that he will let me try for a VBAC (but if not i'm prepared for another c/s). :)
I say try. Worse can scenario, you end up with a ECS! I think you will later regret having a c/s over a vaginal birth without trying.
