Allison gave birth to her third baby at 42 weeks via a planned induction. This was her second VBAC and the birth was a beautiful experience. She was induced with pitocin and had a short, epidural-free labor and birth of her 9 pound 12 oz daughter, Ivy. Allison and her husband enjoyed two restful and quiet days in the hospital and arrived home to their older children two days later. Allison’s postpartum took a turn when she and her whole family developed COVID just days after her daughter was born.
