I'm looking for information on having a successful waterbirth via a midwife after two previous c-sections. I'm located in Cape Coral, FL and found a place but they won't do VBAC due to the potential risk of uterine rupture. (I've read studies saying that there isn't any difference in risk in uterine rupture between VBAC and normal births)
Do you think I should attempt to find a midwife that could help me with this or do you think I should have my baby at the hospital?

first I would talk with your doctor(s) that performed the c-sections to find out what type of incision they used. You can't tell the uterine incision by the belly scar. Depending on how they did the incision depends on you chances for VBAC and risks for rupture. Mayo Clinic has a good VBAC site to check out.
