Re: If you had a hospital VBAC, what did they "make" you do at the hospital?

At the hospital I delivered at constant external fetal monitoring was required. They also preferred that I have a heplock because I was gbs+. Hospital policy was that I have a nurse with me constantly. If my nurse needed to use the restroom then they'd bring another nurse in.

I was fortunate that the monitors they used were ones that could be used while in the tub. I was able to walk as much as I wanted (until my epi was placed) and I was still able to try different positions for pushing.
