what does Vbac mean?

i had a home birth with my second - it was lovely, (just not so 'hippy dippy' as this vid however! i just got going on the bed and never moved! i had a fabulous NHS midwife who was quite happy with home birthing.
still - am glad this lady got the birth she wanted.

what a beautiful video i really enjoyed watching that and am so glad she got the birth she wanted in the end! smile

Actually made me cry!

Vicar - VBAC means vaginal birth after caesarian section.

Vicar- it's vaginal birth after caesarean.

Good for her, having the birth she wanted. I can't imagine that a jacuzzi is a terribly clean place to give birth, though, they are full of bacteria and/or chemicals. Ick.

One would hope it was cleaned first! wink

Her scar was very high????

Divvy Fri 09-Oct-09 11:12:43

Maybe that is from a different operation?

Whilst its nice that she finally got what she wanted, I do find it tiresome that people like this peddle the myth that hospitals and doctors are evil and that the only way to give birth is naturally at home.

I have stopped going to antenatal yoga because I just got a bit tired of the teacher inferring that if you talk to your baby regularly, are relaxed, have no stress and breathe properly then you will have a wonderful labour. I just felt for some of the 1st time mums there who actually believe this shit and then feel like a failure when they end up with a CS angry

I am lucky enough to have given birth naturally (but with plenty of pain relief) and hope to do so again, but there may be a reason why I cant, and every woman should be able to accept that every body and indeed every baby is different, and that as long as you and your baby are safe and well, then who cares how you got here!

I do rather feel like that about my vbac... thanks for sharing

divvy can you link me please.

No the high scar is indeed from the cs which they do like that in the states. Not every time I believe but some cons still do that.

She was beautiful even with the scar though I thought.

moss I don't agree that people are peddling a myth. This lady did indeed have a terrible time and was subjected to drugs that she should never have been given, so in this case, she has a point.

On the whole, no, the docs are not the devil incarnate, but I do see them trying to take over and medicalise things alot when there is no need, ie the MW has everything in control. Had it last week, itchy doc wanted to use instruments, very experienced mw was on top of things, baby born 10 mins later completely unassisted.

Also alot of ladies get alot of comfort from having some kind of focus, Ie talking to baby, breathing and all that goes with it. No, there isn't always a 100% pathway to a natural birth but if ladies are relaxed and positive, it is fact that they will labour more positively on the whole.

Does anyone else think that newborn baby is in fact a) HUGE and b) clean.

the baby weighed over 9lbs and was born into water libra


The first one.

They would have cleaned it after the c/s and wraped before showing mum.
