Natural still better after cesarean...

Janna Farley wrote an excellent article on the high value of vaginal birth after a previous cesarean (VBAC). Her article caught my attention because one of the mother's interviewed describes her cesarean as necessary for a posterior baby who didn't descend in labor. I address this very issue in my chin tucking article under Baby Positions on the Spinning Babies Website. Here's the description from the ArgusLeader.com article:

The 32-year-old Sioux Falls mom was a good candidate for a VBAC. She had an unplanned C-section with her first child after 24 hours of labor because he was in the posterior position. "He never really descended into my pelvis," she says.

Did her homework

When she was pregnant with her second child, Redetzke considered a VBAC but did her research.
