I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I've had 2 c-sections, then 4 hospital vbacs. I've driven over the state line (about an hour) for my vbacs, but since the last one (and the retirement of my wonderful doc) the practice has changed their vbac policy and dropped me as a patient. I tried another practice but was told that I should prepare myself for a possible c-section and that I would have to agree to internal monitoring and an early epidural.
So, I called a very experienced midwife who said she would be happy to take me as a client! I have to admit I am nervous, but excited. At 45, this will most likely be my last baby (I've had 5 miscarriages since my youngest was born) and would really love for this birth to be wonderful! I've just gotten my Hypnobabies materials and will start on those soon. I've had epidurals with all my vbacs, but made it through transition before the epidural 3 of those times. It's just the fear of pushing that I need to overcome.
I've been lurking for a few days and learning a lot from you ladies. I look forward to reading and learning even more!
