hollyberry4 :  congrats on your new baby, and so happy you had a positive birth experience! I hope you don’t mind, but I have so many questions! I had a horrible, botched c section with my first a year ago, and I just got pregnant again. I want a VBAC, but really I just feel like I have no good options and there’s no way this will turn out well…

1. Are you in the U.S. or a different country? I’m in NY, and with my induction, the sticks were never discussed as an option. Nor was narcotic pain relief- it was epidural or nothing.

2. How long ago was your first born, and why was it a c section?

3. How did you switch positions while you had an epidural, and what positions did they put you in? When I had an epidural, they wouldn’t move me at all. I was left on my back for hours.

4. How are you feeling after a 2nd degree tear? Is it as bad as c section recovery?

thank you for sharing your story, and congrats again!

hollyberry4 :  I don’t know how many days post partum you are OP, but I found my second degree tears felt significantly better after about a week. So if you aren’t there yet, have hope!

Inductions can be wild. I didn’t have the sticks, but they did do a cervical insert for 24h, then deemed me good enough to start the drip, which went from about 2:30pm-8pm with just minor contractions until my water broke and my son was born <3 hours later. Once those induction contractions get going they can really hurt, well done sticking it out for so long and having your successful VBAC 👌

Congratulations!!! She’s beautiful 🙂

This is the craziest thing to me…I just started a FET cycle for baby #2. I had a c section with my first, and so desperately want to have a VBAC. I was planning on searching for VBAC stories this morning, and here you are. Thanks for all the detail, and congratulations on the successful VBAC and beautiful baby girl!
