Me too! I wish they would inform women about ALOT of things regarding our options with birth

Trust your body Mama! It's running ship! Don't listen to anything that goes against your instincts...3rd vaginal normally runs smoother than the other 2.. your body has done it before! Assuming your not having a form of VBAC. Have confidence either way I really believe labor heavily depends on state of mind. We were designed to do this - its a natural process <3... Best wishes
