    Vbac Home Birth

    I had a total hell experience when I had my DD in the hospital, ending in an emergency C. I swore I'd never have a child again in that atmosphere unless there was a good medical reason I'd have to. Six yrs later I had a beautiful boy in the peace of my own home. He was born in 4...

    Loved My Vbac!

    I had a wonderful VBAC experience and would do it all over again. My C-section was in 2004 because of face up presentation, which really was not a reason at all to do a C-section. This time around, I lucked out and the baby was in a good position. I had gestational diabetes but...

    I Did It!

    And without an epidural! Yay! I didn't know if I could make it without pain medicine for so long but I did. It was only until the last hour before pushing that I asked for stadol to get the edge off, but no epidural... I thank my husband for endurance...

    Not Perfect, But I Had My Vbac

    After my induction-turned-cesarean left me miserable and unable to bond with my daughter, a chance encounter started me on the path to VBAC. I planned a homebirth for my second baby and saw two wonderful midwives starting around 12 weeks. The pregnancy was uncomplicated except...

    Faith Vs Doubt

    My c section was due to failure to progress because the baby was not descending and fetal distress. I had endured about six hours of active labour, got to 9 cm and then the baby's heart rate started to drop. The OB suggested a c section. At the time I was disappointed but also...

    My Vba2c

    After having two c-sections I honestly didn't think a vaginal birth would be an option for me when I again fell pregnant. My first birth had been a planned c-section when my twins decided to start sibling rivalry early and fight for oxygen in the womb. So they were taken out 2...
