My doc says I can opt for another C Section or I can try vaginal for this baby in September. I'm curious if anyone knows how my insurance will take that. If I opt for C Section even though the risk is the same as VBAC, will my insurance even be willing to cover it? Anyone with experience with this?

Call the insurance company and ask. Every ins is different.

Insurance is there to help cover costs they don't care how you have your baby. I've had both kinds of births and the process was the same just a different priceπŸ’›

I believe it should still be covered either way usually if the doctor if giving you the option he knows what your insurance covers as well but I would call and find out yourself from the insurance to be on the safe said

I heard that if you have a c-section with a first pregnancy than it's recommended to have one with the second just for the risk of tearing and infection. They should cover it.

My c-section cost less than my friends vaginal. We both have different insurance but I thought that was weird.
