I am a VBAC hopeful. Was hoping to have a home birth, now just focused on a vaginal birth without drugs! (though still willing to go at home)
I am 41 weeks 2 days today and scheduled for a foley induction May 24 (Tues).
My cervix has been closed (not even fingertip) for the last 3 weeks. They have been trying to do a stretch and sweep (at my request).
DS1 was born c-section due to frank breech and my recovery was AWFUL! I SO want to avoid that.... it will be my last choice.
So - does anyone have any success stories about foley inductions on a closed cervix?
Any tips? I will be packing a breast pump (both sides or one at a time?) and books...laptop, music etc...and planning on walking around as much as possible
The consulting OB (I have a midwife) wants baby to be engaged (wasn't last week) and cervix open enough to get foley in to try this. Then they will wait up to 24 hours for it to work. I have to stay in the hospital the whole time. :(
