Welcome Welcome  
Welcome everyone, I am glad to see so many people join today!

I am Danielle, I am 23, SAHM to my son Camden who is 8 months old. He was born Via C-section after a failed induction in December.
I felt as though I had no other option. My OB/GYN really made it seem like it was do or die. So of course I blindly followed.
I am glad that after the fact I became educated about induction, c-sections, and all the horrible interventions that landed me in the OR that day.
Since then I also started the only ICAN chapter in my state. (International Cesarean Awareness Network)

I am planning on going back to school soon (when we financially can take on another bill) to become a midwife.
We are planning more children and I am hoping for a VBAC next time around.

Welcome again, I hope to have a great group here!

Hi, I'm Christie. I have never had a surgical birth, but had a very bad first birth full of unnecessary interventions. Thanks to that I have educated myself a lot about interventions and c-sections so I could do my best to avoid them in my second birth, which was 100% natural. I hope that other peoples' stories can help others avoid unecessary caesareans. I probably won't have much to add to the group, but look forward to reading the posts :)
