Re: Lennon Maxine's Birth Story (2 hour labor/waterbirth/rare placenta abnormality)

I had a velamentous insert and vasa previa with baby #7. It was seen on an ultrasound at week 17. They kept track of it and knew it ran along the top of my uterus. My water was not broken during labor and burst as I was birthing. All was well.

I also birthed my own baby #3 into my hands during a waterbirth. It was a beautiful birth and very hands off. After the head was out I looked at my midwife and said "help" and she check for the cord, but that was it. She was 10 lbs, 10 oz.
