Hi Mamas,

 

We welcomed Arthur Meriwether on Saturday morning at 9:22 AM after only 6 hours of active labor!  8-10 good pushes and out he came.

 

We had a fantastic labor support team, wonderful midwives, and supportive friends... I couldn't have asked for a better birth after a mediocre hospital experience the first time (2006) and a C-section for DS1 (2008). 

 

Don't let anyone tell you a primary HBAC is out of the question, if that's what you really want, choose your providers carefully, eat well and prepare.  You can do it!

 

All the best -

 

-Xen

 

ps now to check out all the cute baby pictures on this DDC!!!!  Best of luck to Mamas who are still waiting for January babes.

Congratulations on your HBAC! Your previous experiences sound similar to mine and a VBAC is possible!
