With Veronica's first two C-sections, she pushed for hours and ended up with C-sections. Then she had a repeat C-section with her third baby. When she got pregnant with baby number four she decided to go for a VBAC. She shares her faith journey, and how she prayed for clarity in deciding what to do.
Even after she decided to VBAC, her provider scheduled her for a repeat C-section, which she found out about only days before. She got sick with COVID, and canceled her C-section. A few days later she went into spontaneous labor! The hospital wouldn't let her husband in to the hospital because she was positive for COVID. Listen to the show to hear the end of this exciting VBA3C story!
