spam me with VBAC sources!

My DD was born via c-section (60+ hours of labor followed by 3 hours of pushing, baby would not budge, almost 10 pounds....I was just exhausted), and I do not want another c-section with our next baby, who is not conceived yet, but I'm planning ahead. The whole labor process was pretty traumatic for my husband and he would prefer to just schedule a c-section. Please spam me with sources (websites) that I can show him explaining the benefits of VBAC!

As far as I know, the hospital I delivered in does not allow VBACS, and my OB told me both the day after delivery and at my 6 week follow up that I should have another c-section with next baby. I'm guessing he tells every c-section mom that because they just don't do VBACs at that hospital. I want to believe that my body can have a baby the way it was intended to! I have my yearly exam at this OB's office on Friday and I want to discuss my options for future deliveries. I like my doctor, but also really want a VBAC next time around.

thanks so much!
Happily married to my amazing husband , unexpectedly crunchy mama to our beautiful girl born Nov 2011 and our sweet little boy born April 2014!
