  • VBAC concern

    Hi, long story short: over five years ago I had a c-section with my son. Then this past September, I went to my first ultrasound only to find out there was no heartbeat and the fetus had stopped developing around 7 or 8 weeks. My doctor gave me misoprostal to bring on the miscarriage as I had no symptoms...

  • Water VBAC

    Hi, I am new to the site and not a midwife (I hope this doesn't matter) but want to be one in about 10 years time because I am passionate about pregnancy, birth and babies. I had an all natural and calm hospital water birth in 2010 for number 1 and wanted that again in 2012 but due to having twins...
  • Wondering if VBAC is a possibility for me

    Hi, I'm not a midwife, but I'm looking for some advice to assess whether a VBAC would be a viable option for me. I had a c-cection with my first child.

  • Transverse twice?

    I have a friend that is 36 weeks with her second child and yesterday was told she would have to schedule a c-section due to this baby being transverse. Her first child was transverse as well and had to have a c-section with that baby also. She has been going to the same OB & they do not do any manual...
  • Twin VBAC

    Hello Ladies, I am looking for an experienced midwife who would consider attending a home twin VBAC. The first baby was born by c-section after a face presentation was dscovered in late pushing. The mother is very motivated to have a vaginal birth but conditions in her home city in Canada restrict her...
  • Re: I need Information

    Hi JLangley I would like to encourage you to plan a physiologically normal birth, and only accept surgery if there is a valid reason at the time. The main issue to check prior to making that decision is that the baby's placenta is clear of the scars in your womb's lower segment. It sounds to...

  • Birthlove

    Some of you may remember the Birthlove website. It was a huge resource in the early 2000s. There was a lot of collaboration between Birthlove and Midwifery Today. The site went down and has now been put back up. There are no forums or interactions but the information is a treasure. Go to: http://birthlove...
