How did you find the hospital and staff? I am planning a VBAC, so this will be my first time going in the hospital in labor. Just wondering how they treat you.

well, I had 4 c-section, this is my last baby. I was never given the chance to try natural, and NONE of my c-sections were for any reason. the first was because they thought he'd be too big. BUt he was a normal size. The rest were repeats. I REALLY want a chance to try. Dr.Mayo did a uterine scar measurement on wednesday, my scar looks great. Now i'm just hoping I can get an epidurel.

How does he get the measurment? I wonder if I will have that done or maybe he had it in chart since he did my last section.. I was not aloud last time since it was just a year since my last section it has to be more then 18 months so I was not aloud :(

It's just a high tech ultrasound, they find your uterine scar measure it and go from there. Dr.Mayo told me if it was less then 4mm then they don't really like women to try, not saying I still couldn't. But mine ended up being 5mm. Not sure if it helped at all, but I have been drinking red raspberry leaf tea for this whole pregnancy, it's suppose to strengthen and tone your uterus and help it function better during pregnancy and labor.
