Well, DS was 2 lb at birth, so I don't have personal experience, but my best friend had an 11 lb baby, naturally at home. It was a HBAC. No tear, no problems, no nothin' - just a gorgeous, healthy baby!
He was her fifth (fourth VBAC), so that could have something to do with it, but I don't think so - it's totally possible! Having a supportive doula will probably make a big difference, as will being really informed, especially about the notoriously inaccurate nature of any "size measurements" from u/s.
Kelley, lucky partner to my Canuck and momma to Peter Gwydion (9/08) , Eliot Theoden (2/11) , and Harper Ophelia (m/c 6/12) . We breastfeed exclusively, cosleep peacefully, vax selectively, homeschool joyously, and love each other unconditionally!
