Do The New VBAC Guidelines Actually Support VBAC Mothers?

There is pretty awesome news for VBAC mothers and positive birthers alike. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in their revised Guidelines Birth After Previous Caesarean Birth have said:

‘successful VBAC have the fewest complications.’

But can I be honest? I feel like that person. You know, the scientist at mission control after the rocket has launched and is successfully in orbit? Everyone else is dancing around, cracking out the Whiskey. The camera pans back to me. I’m still chewing my finger nails looking at the screen on my desk making rapid calculations on a yellow pad. Not only are we off course but, holy cow, has anyone noticed that comet?

Birth has changed me. I had an emergency caesarean for un-diagnosed breech, a hospital VBAC,(vaginal birth after caesarean), and a HBAC (home birth after caesarean). Through these now 6 + years of pregnancy, preparing my mind for birth after caesarean, believing in my body, and a hell of a lot a breastfeeding, I've grown in confidence, strength, and found my calling. As a book nerd turned birth nerd I'm called to read everything and write whenever I get a second to gather my thoughts between the school run and cleaning up yogurt finger prints. With the residual brain of each day I love to share experiences and support with mothers on my Facebook group 'How to Have a VBAC'.
