I needed to pick two things. It was a VBAC and a UC. I'm most proud of the UC part, so I picked that

I had an HBAC last time, and UBAC this time!

Unassisted childbirth - no birth attendants.

Can't really have an unassisted C-Section, so maybe that option was a little redundant. :

I had a vaginal delivery at the hospital, planned a homebirth, had to transfer

We had an unplanned UC... I had been in labor all day at the hospital but was sent home and told to come back when "something changed". Well, my water broke when I was getting out of my third bath of the evening and I started pushing right away! Poor DH... he freaked out but did AMAZINGLY well... suctioned out Hannah's airways and caught her since I was standing up! It was AWESOME and we'll do it again next time... especially since we just got the bill for the pointless ambulence ride and rediculous hospital stay!!!!
