Successful home vbac- added link to birth story blog 9/30
I can't type too much because I'm nursing and attempting to type with one arm on our glitchy iPad 1. But after 24 hours of early labor, 8 hours of active labor, and 50 minutes of pushing, baby Annabelle was born at home into the arms of her mom and dad. A successful home vbac! Can't say enough great things about my birth team- dr. Fischbein, his midwife karni, and my doula jennifer. Annabelle weighed in at 8 lbs 15 ounces. I'll type more about her birth later. Recovery was a little rough as I tore and needed stocked and one tear below the urethra that didn't need stitched. Lost a large amount on blood and put on strict bed rest for the next few days but hanging in there. Still in shock that I labored that long. Annabelle looks great and nursing well.
