  • A c-section with my first, and this one is going to be a scheduled c-section. I am not going through 23 hours a useless labor again. But to each their own.

  • If you go on Youtube and type in VBAC, you can watch stories that include waterbirth VBACs. I've never had a c-section otherwise so I can't be of help, and I have yet to attend a waterbirth VBAC. =( Check out the videos, though, they're inspiring! You can also visit the website for VBAC stories that include waterbirth.

  • good luck. are you going to do your water birth at home or at a birthing center?

    i'm going for a VBAC as well at UCLA with a Nurse-Midwife and Doula. I'm 35.5 weeks pregnant and wonder when my body will go into labor on it's own this time.
