Transcription: 
I personally chose to attempt a vbac because I felt the I was bullied into ac-section with my first child. With my daughter, I had planned a natural birth. I had planned an unmedicated birth. I had taken the Yoga classes every week. At 39 weeks when an ultrasound showed that my daughter was close to nine pounds, my OB decided that it would be best for me to have a c-section. In his words, he was concerned about should dystocia, which is where the shoulders would get stuck in the birth canal. As he put it to me and my husband, he lost a baby because of should dystocia. When you hear something like this, as a parent, there was no way that we were going to take that risk. We decided to follow his advice and have a c-section. When my daughter was born 8lbs 3 oz -- significantly smaller than what they had thought she might be -- we felt that we could have had a choice in the birth experience. Vbac, for my son, was something we wanted to attempt.
