Hi there, we are planning a VBAC after a c-section for a breech baby.
If this little girl will turn her butt around we will be having it, with the "support" of my OB in a hospital. He really has been great about wanting to help me acheive this, but I know the OB in him will/may come out in the moment sooo my plan is to stay away from the hospital for a long time AND keep my booty out of the hospital bed!
"Wanna give me a c-section again, gotta catch me first!"
We planned to hire a doula - have interviewed a few but have not found anyone we like and had some major expenses come up that were unexpected so it may not happen.
Plan B is having my aunt help - she is a nurse practicioner so she can help with the medical side of things. She already said if they refuse to give me a Heplock she will just unhook my IV for me so I can walk when I want and things like that. She is pretty supportive and helpful with other techniques/ideas.
So I wanted maybe have my husband and or her learn a few things that could be really really helpful to me as pain relief. Again goal being to keep out of the bed until my body will no longer allow me to. I have heard there are pressure points ect that doulas use during labor....do you know anything about them? Tried them?

it's worth looking into for sure! I thought I had something linked in the subforum about it but I don't. Not sure where I stored that link.
In my case, my husband is VERY back seat when I am in labor so he is basically not to be counted on for anything other than timing contractions, which he takes very seriously. He did press on my back once this past time and he was really bad at it. And he went to medical school! So anyway, I never counted on him doing anything, but I did have a doula at my first birth and then a bunch of women at my second birth who would be perfect for that kind of thing.
I don't remember where I found this link, if it was here or other surfing, but I feel like you were talking about me! VBAC, had a section because baby was breech... trying to do this naturally... can't afford a doula, and i'm trying to "train" my mother and husband to coach me!!! LoL
