I am 14weeks along w/baby #2 after a very unwanted & unnecessary c-sec. I've been struggling w/the option of a repeat vs VBAC. I have visited hundreds of websites including ICAN, forums that share successful & terrible VBAC stories, nurses & doctors' forums, I have spoken w/friends & relatives & I have heard from many of u.
After 14 weeks of changing my mind on a bi-daily basis, I thought I came up w/a final decision to VBAC. I want to enlist the help of a midwife /doula because although my own doctor & hospital "allow" for a trial of labor, I know they're not rooting for me.
After searching thru many more websites, I found a handful of doula/midwifery services in my area. Some are home birth only. Some are in-house facilities. The 1 midwife that assists births @ the hospital doesn't assist VBACs. So many women & midwives encouraging VBAC, I finally make my decision & they are afraid just like my doctor. HOW DISCOURAGING!
