Any VBAC mamas?

I'm new here. My name is Marilyn, i'm the proud mom of 2 girls, and i'm pregnant with my 3rd baby who is also a baby girl and due on April 2nd. I had c-sections with both of my girls for non-medical reasons that I wasn't educated enough about at the time. My oldest was breech and my 2nd was just a repeat csection because my OB does not do VBACS. This time i'm seeing a midwife and am planning on having a VBA2C at home. My OB is not supportive of it at all and so I don't think I will be seeing him anymore. I don't want to end up having another csection unless it is completely necessary, in which most cases it isn't. I don't feel like being suckered into it anymore...no way! 

Anyway, just curious to know if there are any other VBAC mama's here and if you'd be willing to share your experiences. 

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here!

I'm a VBAC hopeful (due the first part of January 2013), so I'd love to hear VBAC experiences as well!

I've had two vbacs. My first was a traumatic experience at a military hospital with the on call ob who was pissed that I refused to have a repeat csection and it was right before Thanksgiving and he was impatient.....my 2nd was an unassisted birth at home. Amazing amazing experience. Complete opposite of the first vbac and I recommend home birth for vbacs over hospital ones for so many reasons now.

I have had 2vbacs. Great experiences. My section was medically necessary, but 2 other births were different and did not require a section.

 Hi Marilyn, I had a VBAC with my 2nd baby.  I'm sure you will find a lot of good information here.
