homebirth vbacs? - Page 3

post #41 of 62
Had my 4th child on January 2nd and he was my 1st VBAC as well as my first homebirth and it was wonderful
post #42 of 62
I had a great HBAC, with a country midwife. If I can do it with a 10 lb. 2 oz. boy with a nuchal arm, I feel like anyone can who wants to (barring things like placenta previa, etc.. but those are usually easy to rule out beforehand).

I posted my birth story here, if you want to read it, I think you can look for my posts by my username. oh, and he was born 'en caul'! It was a first for my midwife of 30+years experience too, and doubly unusual in such a large baby.

The thing that helped the most I think, was that I wasn't fearful (got the heck out of Dodge when my "pro-VBAC" OB started talking about how wonderful induction is, even on a VBAC, and got to fear-mongering about ruptured uterus. My midwife's response was, "It's like any other labor and birth so long as you don't mess with the labor process or mess with her uterus with drugs to hasten labor."

And so it was. The best part was, with the midwife remaining respectfully quiet when I needed her to, and letting me do it my way instead of dictating to me, my body took over and nature ran its course. It was amazing.

I'm planning and HBAC for April 2008. I'm officially 8 months along with my second babe. Home was the obvious choice for me and VBACing.

The do homebirths in Hampton Roads. There is one licensed provider.I am considering them for myself.
Actually, I think there are 3. CPMs, all. PM me if you need/want more info...and I think every CPM in VA does VBACs, as far as I know...the likelihood of getting one in the hospital, is veery low.

Yup, we're out here! #1 was a cesarean, #2 VBAC in hospital (hospital policy) with midwife, #3 HBAC. It was an AMAZING and empowering experience and if I wasn't done having children, I would definitely HBAC again! We got the best care (better, in my opinion, than a hospital) because the midwives were totally focused on us! I was SO relaxed being at home, it took me hours to realize that I was really in labor!

My only point of advice when dealing with VBAC/HBAC, have a doula there. A doula provides the BEST labor support for you and your partner. We had one with our VBAC and HBAC and it made all the difference in the world for both my husband and I. They can be pricey, but some do it for free, so check around. Good luck!

Planning a HBAC for October '08. 12/06 c/s due to pre-eclampsia, failed induction, fetal distress, etc. It is difficult not to question the decisions that were made back then. How much of that could have been avoided/prevented? Oh well. Looking forward to another healthy baby, this time we head straight to OUR bed!

To the OP: Why are you trying to find us? I keep checking back and the suspense is killing me! :-)

Well hello there! From TBW!

I am also planning on this coming July. An HBA2C actually! I can't wait!

I just figured out what UBAC and HBAC stand for! hahaha I'm kind of slow on the acronyms. I've been saying that I'm planning a homebirth VBAC... so an HBAC. Ideally it will be a UBAC, but I will have a midwife who's willing to stay in the other room unless I say I need her.

I am talking with a homebirth provider in VA who does vbac about a possible hbac this fall. They are Blessed Birth Services.

HBAC planned for late October in WA

I have Tricare and am planning to have a HBAC in late October '08. I haven't seen doc yet since I am trying to chart my course. I will probably just stay on Tricare Prime and do the HBAC out of pocket since I don't think they will take kindly to it. As a dependent and member of Armed Forces it is best to keep it on the low. I know there has been some success on Prime and Standard Tricare getting paid, so if you know any details I'd appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

I appreciated your information. I had a C-section after 20 hours labor and no drugs. The doc wouldn't turn my darling and practically forced me to have C-section. I am planning a HBAC in October. Blessings!

My first was a unnecessarian, my second was the most perfect hospital VBAC possible, and the little one due in May is a planned HBAC. There are plenty of us out there.

I have had 2 HBAC's and planning my 3rd HBAC (4th VBAC) for December.
