I had the twins vaginally and people always ask "Oh, so you got a cesarean with them then?" Uhhhh NO! lol I was only 18, but thankfully (because I was an idiot about this stuff back then), my doc had zero plans to section unless necessary. I was induced, I did get an epi, but it all went very smoothly. Aside from a pretty bad tear, things went well. And no one was a jerk while I was in labor. Of course I probably would have agreed with them back then than disagreed.
Anyway, this story is very powerful! I'm going to repost it in my old DDC.
I knew a woman who had twins via unassisted natural vbac. I'm going to read this story too, I agree even if it wasn't all natural it's pretty amazing to have twins vbac!
Edit: I just read the whole thing and cried through it all. VERY inspirational I agree. Funny, I had just come here posting that I usually feel birth stories lose their birthing magic when I read the word epidural but that was not the case with that story. Amazing woman. I wish more women were educated on birth!

What an inspirational story! Thank heavens she was assigned that nurse/midwife. She is probably largely responsible for her success along with the moms own fortitude and her husband's consistent support. Amazing! Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to link this story to Facebook to share.
