The article on the front page got me thinking about this. I'm pretty sure that my C-section was caused by all the interventions that I had during my induction. I have emotional issues with pelvic exams and the on call docs were really rough and checked way too often in my opinion. I declined as often as I could but I was in labor long enough that I had to deal with several shift changes. I'm sure that it kept me from progressing as I might have if I had been relaxed. Plus my midwives and I are sure that my baby's meconium aspiration was caused by the fluctuations in my blood pressure that happened when my first epidural failed. The OB has already repeatedly counseled me to expect to have another c-section. I'm determined to have a VBAC.

But now I'm wondering about a home birth. Our house is just up the street from the hospital and we could certainly rent a tub.

Has anyone had a HBAC? Or know of anyone that has?
