  • Find a doctor that supports you view and won't push you into a medically unnecessary C-section. Also find out about his partners views too in case one of them winds up delivering yours.

    I had a c-sect. with my first and vaginal with my second.

    I'm going ot have a HBAC. VBACs are safe...even safer at home (cuts down on intervention which causes uterine rupture - which is .5%)
