going for an HBAC!
Sun, 08-21-2011 - 1:51pm

My first DD was a c-section for breech presentation. My second- I had a hospital VBAC with a great midwife group. Well, I just found out Im pregnant and I have a fantastic midwife and will be trying for a HBAC (homebirth after cesarean). I'm ecstatic. I really wanted this last time but also wanted to show myself I could give birth in the hospital environment. Now that Ive had 1 VBAC, though, my risk factors are greatly reduced and I am ready for my homebirth.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am excited to hear about your hbac plans. I had my vbac baby at a birth center (free standing). I have always wanted to have a home birth, but my dh wasn't on board.

Are you using the same midwife team you used with your hospital vbac?
