Board stuff--birth stories etc.

Hey everyone!

After our discussion last week or so about having sticky posts, I talked to the bump gods and they set me up as the moderator of this board.  So hopefully that means we should be able to sticky posts now.  I was thinking we could make a list of birth stories (both VBAC and RCS) that we have had on this board.  Maybe also a list of resources.

Thoughts/comments/whatever?

Re: Board stuff--birth stories etc.

  • Sounds great!  Let me know where I should post the birth story for you to get in there:-)

    Also, we should have a sticky with a list of questions to ask your provider, since that is asked a lot.

    Ditto. I think it is a great idea!

  • Sounds good, I agree we may want a sticky of questions to ask OBs/Midwives and a thread of resources as well as the Birth story threads.

    Do we want something in the resources thread about how to find a supportive provider (calling the hospital L&D, talking to doulas, ICan chapter etc.)

  • Nice! The VBAC board is all sorts of fancy now, what with a moderator on here, hee hee.

    I think a list of links to the NIH consensus from 2010, Childbirth Connection, all the links w general info about VBAC would be good. I also like the "questions to ask a provider" idea.

    Wasn't there a good post awhile back about how to know if your provider really is VBAC friendly?

  • yay this will be an awesome resource for the board! I think success and failed VBAC birth stories as well as resources, education, and stat type stuff would be very useful!
  • I think that is awesome. I don't know if it is allowed but it would be great to make a few of the articles on the risk of Uterine Rupture sticky as well as some of the studies that compare outcomes in out of hosptial birth scenarios. I don't know if this reflects too much bias? I just have found a ton of great articles on this board that would be helpful for someone coming here for the first time.

  • I think it's a great idea!!!!
  • Great idea and thanks for heading this up!  You'll be a wonderful mod for this board Yes

    Maybe you could start a thread for birth stories and ladies could either c&p their stories or c&p the bump link to their birth story post.

    Same for the resource list.  

    What can we do to help??
