I Had a Vbac

    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...

    Four Vbacs, No Explosions

    My first baby was an unnecesarean.  My second baby was an all natural VBAC in a hospital.  My other three were born at home, with another on the way.  I'm quite the birth advocate now.  I politely challenge doctors (because they make really stupid comments...

    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...

    My Vbac

    My first birth was an unwanted c-section. I thought I had done everything right. I had a midwife, and the hospital she worked with supposedly was one of the better ones in the area in terms of natural births. But during my rather unproductive labor, my son started to have late...

    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...

    Vba2c

    It was actually a VBA2C--a vaginal birth after 2 caesarian sections. My first pregnancy, I was induced due to preeclampsia (serious enough preeclampsia that I was having difficulties with my vision).  I labored for eight hours before a doctor came in and found I had not...

    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...
