If so, I would love to hear your story.
I am 13 weeks pg with #7. My fifth and sixth were both cs. The thought of a 3rd CS makes my stomach turn. Hosp. currently has a vbac ban, though I've been told (by nurses at the hosp) that they are very close to getting epidurals there. I'm thinking that would mean they'd then have 24/7 annesthesia (sp?) on staff. I was told previously that they have not, which is why there's a ban. As i read what I'm writing , i'm shocked at how ridiculous that sounds. A HOSP. WITHOUT ANESTHESIA (SP?) ALWAYS AVAILABLE? GIMME A BREAK. anyway, regardless, i would love to fight this hosp.on my RIGHT to birth, and my right to refuse major surgery... my vag. births have all been induced, 2 times i went 14 days "over". I birthed a 10 lb baby once, and my other babe who was "late" was 8 lbs. My first cs was b/c baby developed a 10cm ovarian cyst in utero (discovered at 33 weeks) and I developed severe polyhydramnios. I've written about this before here. 2nd cs was b/c of the ban. Nearest hosp that allows vbacs is an hour away, they wouldn't even attempt an induction til i was 2 weeks "over". baby was born (cs) on due date, he was 10.3 lbs, had a true knot, and a neuchal cord. ???????? anyway, that's my story. I have an appointment this a.m with the doc (had her for my 4 most recents babes, and I really like her, she's very pro vbac so she says) she's also chief of staff and I hope she can LMK how likely they are to lift the ban in the next few mos. I may very well be going to duluth. AND I WILL BE SEEING A CHIRO TO POSSIBLY HELP "NATURAL" LABOR BECOME A POSSSIBLITY. i was in a car accident 20 years ago, in which i broke my tail bone and pelvic bone, which may cause the "signals" to NOT work THE WAY THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO. CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM THING, i guess, allowing natural labor. i saw this same chiro in the very latter stages of my most recent pregnancy. anyway....... would love to hear stories of mamas who have successfully fought a vbac ban.
