May I Join You?

Hello everyone
I've been lurking on this board for a long time... on and off since my daughter was born in 2008. To make a long story short, I planned to have a natural birth with her, but she didn't tolerate labor well right from the beginning, and after 13 hours she was in very serious fetal distress and I ended up with an emergency c-section (they put me under general anesthesia to get her out as fast as possible, so I didn't even get to be awake for her birth).

We are now TTC our second child, and plan to attempt a VBAC with a practice of midwives, although it will be at a hospital (DH just isn't okay with a home birth, and unfortunately there are no freestanding birth centers in the area, which is actually what I would prefer).

I know I will need all the support and encouragement I can get, and I am looking forward to getting to know you ladies!

Thanks so much! I am really looking forward to being able to hear from other women who have been through a VBAC. We got pregnant very easily with my daughter, so I'm hoping that we will get our BFP soon!

Welcome! I know TN is a big state, but are you anywhere close to Cookeville? They have a huge birth center there!

Good luck!

No, unfortunately Cookeville is hours away :(. Thanks for the info, though!

Welcome! My son came via unmedicated vbac at a hospital. It's certainly possible!!
