How exciting! Hope your friend gets her vbac! Just wondering…. if she’s wanting a vbac, is there a reason they scheduled her repeat? I had a successful vbac in April of this year but went to 41 weeks 4 days before going into labor. If she really wants it, waiting it out may be worth it. 😉

The Birth Partner is a great book but kind of big to start reading this close…. Definitely check out this pdf though b/c it’s got some great tips!

I would see if there is any medication or anything she is on that you need to be aware of.  It may just be me, but I was so completely focused on labor, I kind of tuned the rest of it out.

Without any preparation at all, my husband prevented them from giving me my regularly scheduled medication (it was to lower blood pressure, but my blood pressure had already dropped from an epidural) and he was the one to point out that my catheter was placed incorrectly (because there was no urine output.)  

Basically, he watched over me like a hawk–so if there is any significant parts of her pregnancy histories, you should have that info, so you can watch her.

@gogogiraffes:  Sounds like she has a pretty detailed plan! Your job can just be to make sure all those things go along and that they don’t ignore a detail. Best of luck! 🙂
