  1. Yikes, sorry, it posted before I was ready.

    I am looking forward to reading this! I had a VBAC almost a year ago, and I scoured the internet for resources….and there aren’t a whole lot!

    These look like helpful topics, and unique ones too!

    I narrowly avoided c-section with my first son. Despite appearing to have wide hips, my son got stuck on my pubic bone on the way out, and he was in the right position. I’m worried my next might end in a c-section. How would you prepare for that? Was yours an emergency c-section? And how does seeing a chiropractor change your likely outcome?

    • Jenn, there’s a whole post on chiropractic in the series (you can read it here), that might answer some more of your questions.

      For my second pregnancy, chiropractic care was a huge part of my prenatal care. In the end, my baby was still too big for my pelvis, but it did help with positioning which I think helped me in labor. My second c-section was not emergent, but definitely necessary, and had we waited much longer, my son might have ended up in the NICU because my uterus was infected from being in labor so long.

    • Jenn, did you have an epidural? I had an epidural with my first, which resulted in c-section from her being “stuck.” I found that avoiding an epidural, and thereby being able to move freely in labor and pushing, REALLY helped with my second labor (successful VBAC).

      I don’t mean to imply that there is something wrong with epidurals, or that getting an epidural means you’ll have a C-section, or vice versa… just sharing something to consider from my experience. 🙂
