Just got back from the hospital from a succesful VBAC after a two day long labor. Very tired and thrilled with my baby! He is beautiful, photos arriving soon. I feel so empowered by the experience of vaginal birth and pushing was amazing!!

wow, i loved reading the birth story. how scary for you, with wanting a vbac, to be so close to another c/s. sounds like you had some great staff there who really wanted you to birth your baby vaginally. I'm so happy for you, and baby Liam is adorable!! I love hearing about vbacs...hoping to have my own any day now!

Great blog for your birth story, Savannah! Congratulations on your successful VBAC! And also on keeping a cool head during so much back and forth with c/s yes or no. You're an awesome mama! And your baby is cute!
