Re: Have any of you ladies had VBAC?

I have a VBA2C. You just have to have it in your mind that you WILL have a vaginal birth, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Know what you want and GET IT! The women on the ICAN message list are AWESOME. get on their group and start talking. you CAN Find someone that will be you care provider, but you might have to look for a while.

Here in MN, most hospitals won't allow a woman to labor if she's had more than one cesarean. Which kinda made my situtaion difficult I ended up seeing a MW in a clinic an hour from her. Had some issues w/ the clinic and eventually ended up having a FP doc, but I got my VBAC!

Have you looked into having a homebirth? I know the idea seems a little daunting at first.

Get a doula. If it weren't for mine, I think I'd of had a CS! Then start calling around to find a provider. Educate yourself on cesareans and the safety of VBAC's so you can have that power over all the others who tell you otherwise!

Good luck, mama!
