My scar is still kinda numb.  It took me a long time till I was even able to look at it, let alone touch it.  The thought of it was stomach turning.  For me, it was all about how I felt about my...

I feel sad for women who want to get pregnant to VBAC as it's 'the only way the can heal'.  How much crappier are they going to feel if they fail?  Or how about if they DO have a great VBAC but...

I'm not trying to be rude at all, yet I sense you taking offense to this.  I'm sorry if I have offended you, I really am.  I don't think it's wrong to encourage mamas to ask their CP questions.  I...
