To the woman with the failed VBAC attempt
Posted Feb 18 2010 9:27am
You are not a failure.
It is not your fault for not being able to vaginally birth your baby after a prior c-section.
Your body did not let you down.
You are an amazing woman.
Your strong will and desire to achieve the safest birth for your baby is admirable.
You had excellent support by your side.
You moved freely while laboring stoically.
You kept your energy up by drinking liquids liberally.
You chose excellent care providers who supported you completely.
For whatever reasons, sometimes our best intentions do not conclude the way we hope and anticipate.
Perhaps the passenger (baby) was in a funky position that we couldn't help rotate.
Perhaps the contractions, although very strong and regular, were not enough to help the baby to descend.
Perhaps there was a short umbilical cord that no one knew about ahead of time, that prohibited the baby from descending any further.
Perhaps there was scar tissue on your cervix that just couldn't or wouldn't be broken to allow for dilation.
Perhaps there was something unknown, and we may never know the reason why.
But you are not a failure.
Warm hugs ---
