At first blush it seems like wanting your child to have the opportunity to re-enact your VBAC with a doll is a boundary problem.

Yeah, that falls in the area of my kid doesn't need to know about this so early. If I have a daughter, I will tell her about everything when she needs to know it. I don't mind the dolls where they are pregnant because children see pregnant mommies. The same goes for nursing dolls because they have dolls with baby bottles and breastfeeding is more natural than that. A VBAC is an adult issue. It doesn't matter to a child how the babies get here, other than natural curiosity.

I did tell my daughters about having a VBAC fairly early on. I didn't use a doll, and I think it was age-appropriate. I haven't shown off my scar, thank you. That much detail, they aren't ready for even 10 years later.

What they know is that I love them both dearly, but the c-section was not a good experience.
