would love to know how your appointment went with your MW...
She was FANTASTIC! My partner and I are both really comfortable and happy with her and feel positive that I will be given the best opportunity to have a intervention free birth. We discussed home birthing but as I'm not comfortable with the distance we are from the hospital she encouraged us to labour at home for as long as possible and just head to hospital to push. That being said though, if I'm labouring well at home and don't want to go to hospital, then I won't. So all in all I'm feeling really positive about having a VBAC. I have an appointment with the hospital midwives tomorrow to book in and all that, so we'll see what they think. But the independent MV has attended many births at Frankston hospital and seemed very positive so here's to hoping.
Again, thank you everyone for your stories. Would love to keep this conversation open for anyone else in a similar situation who needs some encouragement also!
I'm so glad it went well. Please keep us updated...
