She went on to have another unmedicated VBAC. And then she found out she was pregnant with twins! She had a fight on her hands to give birth to her babies, especially since she'd had a previous C-section. Nevermind that she'd had 3 VBACs since then. But, really, how often do we hear of women giving birth to twins vaginally? Never. They just schedule a C-section.
There are a couple of issues that play a role here: positioning of the babies -- particularly baby A (preferably head down), and the medical staff wanting the mom to have medication in her system in case she "needs" a C-section. I am so proud of this mom for sticking to her guns. What a wonderful example she is to this hospital staff. Next time, maybe, they'll think twice about scheduling an unnecessary C-section. Look at the size of those babies! She must have eaten great protein! Congratulations Rebekah. Isn't it amazing what we can do when we set our mind to it and don't let others make decisions for us?
