Hi! I am interested in hearing stories from women or support people who have attempted a vbac at Tacoma General within the last few years. Did you have to struggle? Did you have a supportive OB/nursing staff? Were you happy with the outcome? I am currently 32 weeks pregnant hoping to make a decision soon. Any feedback would be helpful! Thanks, Dana

No experience here. But I have been to many ICAN meetings and have gathered a ton. I would like to sugest that you use the bathroom at the hospital as a quiet space for you and your support people. Staff will not follow into the loo. So get one of those touch lights, so you can see a little without turning on the bright overheads. And labor on the campus as long as you can, without actually checking in. Best of Luck

I know nothing about them, but good luck! What are you deciding between?

Actually about 10 months ago a friend of mine did have a vbac at TG. All natural, no real fighting for it. She had a really great experience!
