  • If I had a previous c-section (which I have not) I would DEFINATELY travel for a VBAC. I believe c-sections are for emergencies and when vaginal birth isn't possible (such as in my friend's case...crushed her pelvis in a bad car accident at 18...baby cannot physically move through the birth canel because of the way it healed).

  • If I were having a baby, VBAC or another vaginal, I would plan to be home.
    If I couldn't be at hoe then I'd plan to travel to the birth center.

    I save the hospital for illness-complications!
    (and necessary surgeries~)
    I wouldn't have a cesarean / repeat cesarean unless it were absolutely necessary.

  • Here in my little town they won't do VBACS so I would have to drive over an hour to a city to see a doctor. To me it would've been worth it but we ended up having another c-section because of other issues.
