... before you attempted your first VBAC?
One. It was totally necessary and very difficult, and I asked my OB about VBAC the next day.
Yes, the VBAC was easier in every aspect except the DH's moaning about a lost night of sleep. (He also complained about night feedings, which he never did).
I've had just one c-section and will be attempting my first VBAC in June of this year.
