I am pregnant with my 3rd and gearing up for my second VBAC. It will always be a VBAC, because that scar on the uterus doesn't ever go away. The only real difference, IMO, is that you have a "proven pelvis"
my first was a c-section due to too much intervention and poor positioning. 26 hours from start to surgery.
my second pregnancy it was a struggle to find the "right" care provider, but in the end, it was mostly my doula who helped give me the confidence I needed to find the right one, stick with it, and have my VBAC. I had 4th degree, front to back, tear. recovery from that SUCKED.
This time, I know I have care providers I know and trust, and the same doula. The only part that worries me is the fact my last birth will be less than 18 months from this one. It's still really fresh on my mind. It was awesome, unmedicated, and only about 10 hours from start to finish. Pretty darn fast for a first "real" labor. I have concerns, of course, that this one will be even faster. But that's not something I can know until I'm in the thick of it.
So glad the OP had a great birth!
I am jealous of you HBAC 'rs. midwives here will not attend an HBAC - at least no midwife I have heard good things about otherwise (as I would definitely want a great midwife to attend me at home, not just someone who said they would attend an HBAC, and didn't have the reputation and experience that you'd want).
This is my last baby, and I am looking forward to a great birth -
