Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??

You may want to read this story: http://doulamomma.wordpress.com/2010...ed-t-cesarean/

She was 10 cm dilated for 20 hours with an intact bag of waters. Even more interesting is how long the placenta took to come out. Her story is especially interesting in that she had had a inverted t incision with her firstborn and she was attempting a VBAC. She was in South Korea (we were there the same time except I chose to return to the US--we were actually due the same day though I never met her, just met her doula) and had both a midwife and an OB who had recently started doing homebirths.
