  • All I can say is good luck. once you find a doctor that will, you may not find a hospital that will take the risk.

  • If you are not having a high risk pregnancy then there is no reason why you should have to be cut open this time. Last time you were you put on pitocin while you were in labor? Did you have an epidural? Both of those thing in addition to the doctor wanting you to have a short labor so they can go home lead to unnecessary c sections.

    Check out the video "Orgasmic Birth"

    It helped me to have the courage to not go back to a regular OB/GYN.

  • I would see if you can find an ICAN group in your area. They can help you with finding a VBAC friendly midwife or doctor. Also check www.mothering.com in their discussion forum under the finding your tribe and find your area and ask the question there.

  • What do you mean the proper license or degree for a VBAC? A VBAC is a vaginal birth, not a special trick magician preform
    keep looking!!

  • I agree with roadfamily there is no special degree it is a vaginal birth I would look into a midwife instead and also point out to prospective doctors that the ACOG now says VBACs are safer than a repeat c-section good luck also join the vbac moms group on here

  • Well I do know that you don't have to have a special degree to successfully deliver a child.. What I meant by that question was I did not want anyone to give me any false information on someone who obtained there degree from over seas and work out oof ther home I have seen that happen before with women who were in bad need of some type of surgery and went with the first thing that they saw smoking and in the long run they ended up having to get more surgery to correct the job of the bad/or non trained doctor from out of someone's kitchen.... Thank you to the other ladies as well for your advice with ICAN and orgasmic birth sites as well.... And yes I would need the luck to go further with this prgnancy being that I am concidered to be High Risk only because my doctors previosly wnated to go simply go home and rest for the evening.
