Just had a VBAC!

So proud of myself that I just had to share and let others know that it can be done! DS1 was emcs but I wanted to try and avoid that so turned down option of elcs and was induced yesterday. Just under 5 hours of labour with gas and air and 15 mins of pushing and out came DS2! He was just under 7lbs so not too big to push out but am really chuffed with myself never-the-less!! I know it's not as straightforward for everyone and cs are by no means the easy option but I'd just want to encourage anyone who's thinking about it to give it a go.

I found the recovery after VBAC so much easier than after EMCS, I hope yours is too.
