Q – I am past my due date and I am starting to hear about scheduling an induction. Can I have an induction and still have a vaginal birth?
A – Women have the best chance of having their babies naturally when their bodies go into labor naturally … induced labors ( some doctors will induce VBACs and some won’t) increase the chances of having another section as the body is not ready to have the baby — if the body was ready, it
would be in labor!
Many of my VBAC mothers are past their “guess dates” – and that’s all it is, a guess. Remember to stop drinking milk, if in fact you have had it during the pregnancy. There are natural things that can help a woman go into labor ( IF the body is ready) – including acupuncture and homeopathic remedies, etc. but faith and trust are also natural things that go a long way. All your ancestresses had babies naturally and I believe that under the right circumstances, you could as well.
