I had a VBAC with a epi with my second. I had labored for 24 hours prior to receiving the epidural. I also knew my baby was in an optimal position (LOA, 6 cm, and at 0 station). It is hard to say if my labor slowed down as it was incredibly slow the entire labor. I delivered 12 hours after receiving the epi. I only pushed for 45 min with a 9+lb baby. BTW - My first birth was an induction and I pushed for 3 hours and he never moved down. DS1 was 7lbs 5 oz.
