Birth Stories

I read peoples' birth stories. I am amazed sometimes. So many of the times. And I wonder if I have the strength to go through that. First baby was a c-section. I did go into labour. Made it to 3cm before the water broke and we saw meconium and had to get her out. Those first 3 centimetres were not easy. This baby is head down. Midwife has been saying all along I am a good candidate for VBAC. But I wonder - can I do it? Can I do it?

You can TOTALLY do it.

One step at a time. But I say: you can do it.

Just remember that things happen how they happen, and if it doesn't end up being a possibility it's *not your fault.* My midwife emphasizes this a lot.
