I thought there was a VBAC thread on this group, but I couldn't find it. I'm a little over 20 weeks and due at the end of January. So possibly February, I guess. I'm going to a hospital based midwifery group. They are supportive of the VBAC. Feels early to start talking about labor, but I feel like I need a plan. Plus, I think I'm going to hire a doula so need to start interviewing.
So, I asked about....
1. movement in labor (constant monitoring is required but they have telemetric belts that can go in water)
2. "past due cut-off" - still 42 weeks, just like a regular pregnancy, provided no other problems
3. IV - you have to have one, but heplock is ok
4. when to come in - she said, "labor at home, but don't wait until 10cm"
I'll meet with the consulting OB at some point during the pregnancy.
I just had an ultrasound and have a posterior placenta. So, that's good.
What else can I do?
