Lately I have been thinking about the fact that there are a few posts I have promised to write in the past, and I need to do something about that...the birth story was one of them.
But, after some consideration, I have decided not to post the detailed story on here. However, if you are interested in hearing it, email me at the address provided in the profile and I can email it to you!
I will just say a few things. This was my fourth baby. I had had 3 c sections in the past. We wanted to try naturally one more time, as I had hope it might work this time...well, it didn't. I labored 8 hours, opened to 6 cm, but baby would not descend into my pelvis. Her heartrate went too low, and so it was decided by the delivery team that the best option would be a cesarean. We are glad we did that, because we found out that was the only safe way for her to be born.
I will never regret having gone into labor and tried one more time. It gave me the final peace and closure I needed to emotionally deal with all previous cesareans and able to accept the fact that I had to have had those surgeries.
I am all for natural birth. I would like to encourage all women out there to go for it! Try it, even after one or two cesareans IF you can get a good midwife or Dr who encourages you and is experienced in vaginal births after cesareans.
If you have any questions at all about vbacs, please do not hesitate to email me. I will be happy to give any help or encouragement where I can.
