Huge hugs and lots of encouragement here! Your body knows what it's doing, it just needs to time to work through the scar tissue and the dysfunction that comes with it. First VBACs can be long labors - the best thing you can do is rest and make sure your baby is in a good position! A midwife friend of mine suggests to her VBAC clients that they have a warm bath, a glass of wine, and scrub the kitchen floors on hands and knees to get the baby in a good position.

I hope that things have taken off and you're now holding a beautiful healthy baby!
