Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

Is it real?

Some of you know that my first 2 babies were born by c-sections that could have been prevented and my 3rd was a vbac. 

Is it crazy that before my vbac baby was born I didn't want anymore kids  But after she was born I really want more, maybe even 2 more.  Her birth was so easy and beautiful, and I want that experience again.  And I love babies and children.  In some ways I feel like her birth was too good to be true, that even though it happened it feels like it couldn't have, kwim?  I want to experience birth again so I can validate that I can do it and that the one time wasn't just a fluke.  Is this all crazy?

No! Not crazy, not a fluke! Yes, it is normal to be awestruck by the amazing miracle your body-- YOU-- performed!! Your body MADE a baby and then gave birth to it! It is crazy! It's like science fiction! MANY women "fall in love" with great birthing experiences and want to do it again/recreate/redo/fix birthing. That's exactly why I became a doula, I am a birth-junkie. I figure I'll have to experience birth vicariously! ;) IF you have the ability to afford (on many levels, not just financially) more children then it seems natural. You weigh the pros and cons of another person in your household and see where it takes you... Or maybe just being around birth will hold you over for a while, like me! ;)

Nope.  Same happened with me.  I could have babies for the rest of my life...I just don't know if I could be pregnant for it.  LOL

This reminds me that I had investigated surrogacy. I could be pregnant and give birth ~and help a couple become parents! So maybe this is an extreme suggestion, but just an afterthought to my previous reply. :)

Quoting doulala:

This actually has crossed my mind on several occassions... i love the idea of it in many ways.  I actually love being pregnant and aside from morning sickness I have near perfect pregnancies.  I think I'll have one more baby of our own and then really start looking into this.

It depends on you. If you feel you can do it again then go. There is no problem to have more babies.
