Long-time lurker finally joins!

I've been a long time reader of many different boards here, and have learned a lot. My first son, Charlie was born in September by C-section after a long, wonderful, hard, drug-free labor. I believe it was medically necessary, but am still grieving the loss of the birth experience I had hoped for.

At the same time, my husband and I are both loving this great challenge of parenthood. It is so much more work and so much more joy than I ever imagined it could be. We were both raised with many of the lifestyle choices of AP and NFL, but are learning so much as we go.

I am hoping for a VBAC next time, and am doing research toward that goal already. I thank you all for this forum, and am looking forward to participating more fully.

Hi there - welcome to Mothering! You'll find lots of support here for a VBAC (and well as processing your c-section experience).

Congrats on the birth of your little boy!
