Drug Free Vaginal Birth after Caesarean

Published by at 3:43 pm under Birth stories

I was a VBAC.  I was told that I would need another C-Section for my second baby because of the risks involved in VBAC.  When my doctor consulted her diary to book a date it felt to me that I was arranging to have my hair done, not bring a life into this world!

My previous Caesarean had been an emergency and I didn’t get to hold or feed my baby. It took me a week to tell my husband that I didn’t want another C-section and he agreed so I cancelled my elective Caesarean.  I met with a midwife who dealt with VBAC and was sent to my local midwife for my check-ups.  She was great and very encouraging.

With the help of a Doula, Labour TENS and my determination to have my second child the way I wanted to, I was able to give birth to my daughter naturally.  After her shoulders were delivered I pulled her out myself with no need for any other pain relief.

I started using the TENS Machine from Tuesday morning and had my baby on Wednesday.  Jane Collings and her book 10 Moons was also very inspiring.

Thank You Labour TENS
