Ok so my dh and I are ttc...and i am on the fence about having a vbac...

I went almost 3 weeks postdate with my son, I ultimately had the choice of a pit induction or being transfered from my midwifes care...We decided to go with the induction (my only regret) I went from 0-6 in about a hour...and stalled at that point...I continued to labor for another 6 hours (no progress) although I had an overwhelming need to push...Jack went into distress and i spiked a fever of 105..I had a crash section that may or not have been necessary...my mom had essentially the same birth story with my brother (and had a subsequent section with me so there is possibility that we have a genetic issues with dilating?)...my question is would you consider me for a vbac client...also would homebirth be possible or would it need to be a hospital/birth center birth?

thanks in advance

I wouldn't hesitate to take you on as a homebirth client.

Wondering.......How much did your baby weigh? Were you GBS positive? Was the baby healthy ?
