I just want to let those who have had c-sections to know that home birth can happen!!!!! I had a section with my son due to toxemia and had my daughter at home 5 mo ago. I had a good labor and wasn't in as much pain with contractions as I thought I would be. I had a hbac planned and was determined to have it that way!! I wanted a waterbirth but it didn't happen that way and she was born in my bed, all 10lbs 4oz of her!! I will admit it wasn't as easy as I hoped but it wasn't unbearable either! I really was happy with the experience and just wanted to share a bit of my story!! I know I came on this site while I was preg and considering hb and I found a lot of encouragement from it! Thank you to all who posted their stories in the past!!
