Successful UBA5C (Stacy)

I am updating from my previous entry here

I am ecstatic to announce the arrival of our son. He arrived vaginally, at home, 10#5oz, 22 1/2 and perfectly healthy. I have had 5 previous csections and have yet to even process the immense healing that has come and will come from this. I love this website and wanted to come here to share my story and God’s glory with all those who are seeking a VBAC of one sort or another, women contemplating UC or UBAC as well as women dealing with body issues. I have that I already seem myself as the most beatuiful woman in the world now. Seriously, I am SOOOO greatful for what my body has done, through all of my pregnancies and labors and birth and surgery. I am overjoyed!

    I also had my son via cesarean and am contemplating a home birth. Congrats to you after 5 CS and getting a home birth. Do you mind if I ask if it was unassisted or with a midwife? I am trying to gather as much info as possible:) What a blessed family you have.

  • Catherine S Wednesday, May 6, 2009, 5:43 pm

    Ha! Just googled UBAC Unassisted Birth After Cesarean…

    Amazing! Beautiful! If you come back and read this I would love to have you email me at twinsmummy20 at yahoo dot com. I have had 3 csections, since 05, and contemplating UCB for my next one (my last csection was a attempted homebirth with midwife for a isolated incident). I would love to read your birth story!

    YOU ROCK! Congratulations! Only a c/section mom can know the true healing that comes from a beautiful homebirth.

    You other moms – go to http://www.ican-online.org. I’m not trying to advertise here – it’s the International Cesarean Awareness Network. It will help you immensely in planning a birth after a c/section. ICAN helped me incredibly after my c/s and in planning my hospital VBAC and ultimately my amazing homebirth. :-)

    Is that your placenta next to your baby? I can’t even imagine how home birth was… congrats Mama… your babies are gorgeous!

  • kristina Sunday, July 12, 2009, 10:08 pm

    Congratulations!!!!!!! Woo, 10 pounder!!! I am currently 34 weeks pregnant with #3 and am planning my first UBAC. Please email me(bubblegum8664@yahoo.com) if you could chat or offer some advice! I’d love to hear your birth story!
    Thank you for sharing and congrats again!

    So encouraging! I have had 3 sections in just under 3 years. I would like another and would like to try for a VBAC as I feel all of my sections have been unnecessary. I do have diabetes but have never had ANY complications (aside from the expected big baby) with any of my pregnancies. All I want is the chance to try- to carry my pregnancies to the end and labor if possible- never carried a baby beyond 37 weeks. Thank you for your encouraging story!

    This is inspiring. I am fighting for a vbac now after just one previous c-section, this gives me hope. You’re an amazing, strong mama!

  • emah padilla Friday, September 25, 2009, 1:39 pm

    Do you know of anyone, anywhere who had a vbac at home or hospital after 3 or more classical insisions. I really need to know… How dangerous is it or is it just some kind of liablity??????

  • Stacy Friday, October 2, 2009, 3:02 pm

    Classical incisions are much more contraindicated for VBAC. The muscles that run on the upper part of the uterus and have been cut, are under a lot more stress during contractions then the lower muscles. I would not have any advice on this… only that I am glad at least csections involve the lower abdominal muscles now, because the healing is much quicker and allows for better options/outcomes for VBAC.

  • Deandra Wednesday, October 21, 2009, 5:41 pm

    Wow, so inspiring! I am also a mother of 5, soon to be six.. all of my babies were born about a year a part w/ the last one being a c-section (r/t placenta previa). My Dr is all for a VBAC and I’m a little nervous, just because of the “horror stories”.. I am also a nursing student w/ just enough knowledge to be dangerous.. Thank you for sharing and for giving me new insight on something I was previously totally against.

    I did wonder tho – it seemed as tho my stomach went down quite a bit more w/ a csection, maybe because the dr laid my muscles flat again – did you notice any difference in your stomach, after having a VBAC vs. your previous CS?

  • Jennie Friday, January 8, 2010, 12:19 pm

    You are amazing. Congrats on your home birth after 5 c sections! That is truly a remarkable accomplishment.

  • Stacy Monday, February 8, 2010, 11:44 am

    Deandra: I noticed that my stomach muscles are much stronger and intact after my vaginal birth. The csection are the main cause of the stomach issues I do have.

    Thank you for all your support! Email me @ fshammond@hotmail.com is anyone was any questions or interest in birth related stuff related to VBAC, UBAC or multiple csections. Thanks again!
