This is a birth story about a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). After the birth of Rosi’s son resulted in a C-section, she wanted to try for a vaginal birth with her daughter. Her first birth was rewarding but not the experience she had hoped for. After an induction at 41 weeks she spent 30 hours in labor and ultimately delivered via c-section. She didn’t feel as connected to the birth experience as she wanted, and felt this affected bonding with her son.
For the birth of her daughter, she wanted to try for a VBAC. This time Rosi educated herself, weighed her options and made really informed decisions. She let her doctors know her wishes: that she wanted to wait 42 weeks before induction, that she wanted an unmedicated birth, and that she wanted to try for a VBAC. She was able to deliver vaginally and managed pain without medication. Though it isn’t possible to control every aspect of your birth, childbirth education can help you better communicate with medical staff and get the support you need. There's a lot anyone can learn from this episode.
