In my last blog post, I’d left off with the news that our birth story wasn’t going to be the perfect VBAC delivery. There would be no successful natural child birth through the power of the Hypnobabies Home Study course. Sure, I was in labor, but it wasn’t exactly going right. I was coping just fine with the contractions, and I’d managed to stay firm and not take anything for the painful cramping that was continuous between contractions. But Eudora? She wasn’t coping so well. And her health and welfare was the most crucial thing in our birth story.
Eudora was tachycardic. Her little heart was pounding up to 200 beats per minute. I’m not sure if the machine registered anything higher than that, but that was it. That was when the doctors determined that a VBAC delivery would not be the best thing for her. She wasn’t descending. She needed to come out.
