My name is Cheri and I am currently 21 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. I have always been interested in home birth and truly regret not doing it with my previous children. There are some issues with my previous maternal history that may hinder my ability to have a home birth. My first child was diagnosed with IUGR and delivered at 35 weeks via c-section. Needless to say he did a classical uterine incision, but a lower transverse on the skin and informed me any future children would HAVE to be born via c-section. Devastating in my mind. I have went on to have 2 more c-sections that were all preformed lower transverse with no complications. My last baby was born in March of 2008, so three years ago and this pregnancy is our final baby. My heart is again nagging me to the fact that I really want to experience a non invasive home birth, but all I have heard and let myself believe is that I shouldn't. I do however know my body, it was meant to give birth. I know I can do it. I now know I should have insisted on a VBAC and never consented to a classical incision, but the past cannot be changed. My question to you is, should I go forward with my hearts desire of a natural birth or consent to the fact that my body has been manipulated to the systems pleasure and this last baby be born via c-section? Thank you for taking the time to read this.
