Georgia Mom delivers Triplets by VBAC

Yes, triplets!

The news has made its way around the childbirth blogosphere, but who cares - we'll say it again! I'm so impressed that this mom could find a caregiver who was willing to deliver her babies vaginally, as well as perform a footling breech vaginal delivery.

The mother went into spontaneous labor at 38 weeks, another rarity in multiple births. And the mother delivered all but the footling breech without an epidural. Wow!

Hopefully this will be an encouraging word for those mothers out there hoping to VBAC with multiples. Here are some links for more info:

labor was induced. epidural the entire time.

From what I've read, the mom only received an epi during the footling breech birth. And typically a VBAC can't be induced. Giving you the benefit of the doubt here, though. :P
