and your only other option was a c-section?
I am 8 weeks pg and like to know my options. My first 2 births were vag, the last one of which was 5 hrs total, 3 hrs from real pain to birth, inc 11 min pushing. My last baby was c-section due to stubborn transverse position. I live where vbac is frowned on and due to circumstances don't believe I am going to be able to find a vbac doctor that will take me. I have found a midwife that will but she is 3 hrs away in another state and DH is probably going to refuse to go with her. Not only based on the time issue but we would also have to pay out of pocket for her.
My DH and my mother have found the one thing they can back each other up on - no midwife and if it has to be a c-section, oh well, we will take care of you. Thanks, but I did the c-section before and am not a fan of that option. I dream of going into labor at night, using hypnobirthing and my large tub to quietly get through labor and birth my child while Dh is deep in sleep. Any chance of that? FYI, DH will call an ambulance on me if he thinks I am near delivering. (we are 1 hr from the closest birthing hospital) He is not "in" to birth at all. My oldest DC is my 16 year old dd. She would gladly help with a uc but I don't want to feel like I am going behind DH's back enough to actually plan that. I have no reservation about my ability to uc.
Just trying to work through the moral issues, wanting the best outcome for all. So, would you even consider it or would you suck it up and plan major surgery?
