Oh....how wonderful!! I loved reading all the birth stories about a successful V-BAC home birth! I made an attempt at home birth with my first child, but ended up requiring a c-section. I hope the second time around I can experience the magic of a home birth! Blessings to you all!!

I will have to look into that group. I am planning a home birth to happen next month. Second baby but first home birth. I am really excited!

Are you planning on assisting with home births when you are a nurse-midwife? We need more out there.

Yay - I like this group! I have not experienced a home birth, BUT I am on the road to becoming a nurse-midwife and absolutely advocate the Home Birth experience! How wonderful!!!

My first was an attempted home birth. After about 16 hours of posterior labor, my naturopath drove my husband and I to the hospital in her own car and stayed with me until the surgery. When I wanted to get pregnant again, I knew I wanted to try again.
Many people I tell about my V-BAC, homebirth ask, "isn't that illegal?" A lot of doctors bully women into believing V_BACs are not possible, safe, or ethical - so doing it as a home birth is not too common.
My kids are 6 and 3. Luckily, my daughter got around to breathing before it came to using the oxygen. She stayed 'mostly' the same color.

Welcome Misty! What a wonderful thing to have a V-BAC home birth! Congrats! I too had the experience with my second daughter, that her breathing needed a little bit of help, but she too was fine after the midwives whisked her off to the other bedroom to give her some oxygen and rubbing. She didn't cry much, but she pinked right up. I was looking at her first picture and she was a bit bluish, which now scares the pants off of me, but at the moment I thought she was equally the second most beautiful person I had ever seen. :) I know the feeling of being able to just lay in your own bed and have your own things right there and to know that "YES! I did this thing, and YES! everything is great!" And I thought the most wonderful thing was that even though it was hard and painful and rough at times, to know that I did it, it made me feel like I could do anything. I wonder what the stats are on V-BAC home births? If its not to much, what led you to have a home birth after your first birth? How old are your little ones? My two girls are 5 and 7. Thanks for sharing your story!

I had a WONDERFUL, successful, V-BAC, home birth. My daughter was born beside my bed in our apartment on a birthing stool with friends and family helping. She was born after 5 hours and the only 'trouble' we had was getting her to take that first breath. After that few seconds, she screamed for 30 seconds and then latched on like a pro and camped out on the breast until she was satisfied. I got to take a shower in my own shower while she slept and then took a long nap with her while everybody else visited elsewhere.
