I sent this to the local mama friend I've made who's had 2 VBACs through my practice (well, one didn't make it to the hospital the other she did). She said it was close to hers and that the only thing they might have an issue with is the hep lock and that's only if I test positive for GBS. Stupid, but with luck it won't be an issue for me.
I believe we have the same rule here, but thankfully my GBS was negative...I was really nervous until I got the result, though!
I don't think I was even tested for GBS here, I'm trying to remember but pretty sure after my GTT at 28 weeks I had no further testing.
Looks good! Erin added some other good ideas along the lines of what I would have mentioned.
You should find out from your doctor what they require as far as leaving with your placenta. At our last place the placenta had to be out of the building within 2 hours and they would only release it to you if you had a cooler. We had no idea but luckily had a cooler in the van an ice machine in the building since we were no where near home. Wish we had known ahead though. At the hospital with DS2 you had to get it a few days after the birth. Good idea to check ahead.

I'm meeting with the lady who will pick up my placenta and encapsulate it Thursday after my appt. Since she's the only one who does it professionally east of Raleigh, I'm sure she's very familiar with the procedures of the hospital. I know there's a time limit, but not like 2 hours.
