56 Rachel’s VBAC + Failure to Progress

Rachel is on today’s episode sharing her birth stories. For her first child’s birth, Rachel was offered a Cesarean at 30 weeks pregnant because her doctor thought her baby was too big. When she finally delivered at 39 weeks, her baby was just eight pounds, five ounces. She was scared into an induction that led to Cesarean by her doctor who told her horror stories about women who had “big babies.”  Her VBAC pregnancy was just four months after her Cesarean and labor was only a few hours long. You can read more about failure to progress, what that really means, and what is DOESN’T mean on our VBAC blog:
