Do you see more issues with VBACs or 2nd csections?

It depends on the tolerance level of the individual. I do see that having an epidural can make some women less active after childbirth.

I have seen good and bad from both. But I have seen bad things happen from women who have issues during birth and refuse to do a csec. Post partum hemorrage is one of the top ones.

The best part of my job is... that's hard! Lol. I love so much about my job.
I love seeing a mommy and baby bond. I love helping them out. I love knowing that I made a differwnce. I love baby baths, walking a csec mom around the pods, even cleaning them up after wards.

Lazy mom. The ones who call me to feed, change, & burp their kids cause they don't want to.
Druggy moms! The ones who test positive for drugs and then when I have to involve cps get upset at me becuz of it.
Dealing with fetal demise. :(
