I was just hired as a doula for a client, having a VBAC (hopefully soon). Her Drs have told her that they want her to stay in bed. She would like a natural birth, and knows that having to stay in bed, will make this harder, although I told her we can do a lot of things "in the bed" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> If the Drs won't bend on it. What I was hoping for though, is to find research that shows that there is no need to be in bed for VBAC etc. She'd like to have ammunition with her, as she approaches her Dr on this subject at her next appointment. Thanks for anything you can send my way! I knew you ladies would be able to help me!! My general searches haven't brought up much that she can take to the Dr.
