Anyone else planning a hbac?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My husband and I just decided today to switch from our birth center to having a home birth. I have one son who was born by c section. Anyone else planning a home birth after a csection?

Yes!!! Our second was a HBAC and it was the most wonderful, incredible day of my life. I'm really looking forward to another fulfilling, empowering birth. You can do it!! It's going to be incredible.

Yes, I am. I had my first VBA2C last June. It was a hospital birth, but totally went great, and healed my hurt in a lot of ways!

Now I'm planning my very first homebirth, after 5 other hospital births.

It's exciting, and I've had moments of doubt. However, I'm focusing on prayer and faith, and surrender...if a fat baby can come out of my vagina in less than 15 minutes worth of pushing in the hospital, then he or she can certainly come out at home..surrounded by our love!

Blessings to you, and feel free to PM me anytime...as I'm always happy to have and be of support to other mama's.

Its so great to hear positive things. Most of the people I know have been pretty rude about it. My mom insisted I needed another c section , but once she saw the business of being born she was the one who suggested a home birth. So my husband and mom, along with most of my other immediate family members are really supportive and think its a great idea.

I'm not but I just talked to my midwife's apprentice about her HBAC experience with her 2nd baby last year. AMAZING!

Go mamas!!! I can't wait to hear all your amazing stories!

yes, we are. DS1 was born via c/s two years ago (yesterday was his birthday ) and this one is due around august 18th. I am actually having my first appointment with my hbmw in a couple of hours - I'm excited to finally meet her.

I am as well! My third was a c-section due to a complete previa placenta and that was after 2 vag hospital births. I already told my midwives that should I become high risk for whatever reason, they might want to just say I did a UC, because I won't go to the hospital unless my life is being threatened at that moment in time. The hospital I would birth at would more than likely feel a c-section is better even though they supposedly support VBAC's.
