This is one of the only things I am worried about. My mw's have told me that the dr's "require" continuous monitoring for vbac's. It isn't necessarily what the mw's like to do but they said it is their dr's. They did give me the suggesting of every 15 min or so to unhook it and go to the bathroom. They also said I could try to get on the birth ball etc if they can keep the hb on the monitor. This scares the crap out of me. I am planning on getting to the hospital at 8 or 9 cm if everything works as planned so that will help. But I do NOT want to be strapped to the bed. Any experience with this? I know I can refuse anything and I will have dh and a doula but just wondering how tough it will be.
Maybe I am just looking for support? Suggestions?
