And I have never felt so indifferent in all my life.  This is turning into one of those aaahhh screw it things which obviously is no good.  I guess I just view tomorrow as a possible way to establish some sort of care until I can work something else out because at this point I feel a bit panicked that the midwives only do VBACs in the hospital I had my c-section, I loathe that hospital the thought of stepping foot into it is sickening.  I just need care for now.  Oh man I hate this.  I want to live in the Netherlands right now.

Sorry you're having such a difficult time! I do not like that VBAC rule. I think any woman who is low risk should be able to give birth wherever and however she wants! And I don't think I agree with the medical establishment about what qualifies as low risk.

My midwife is pushing for our hospitals to take on vbac patients- she helped write a letter to the acog president in attempt to make ooh vbac's a supported practice.

Don't feel indifferent about it- it's something to be worked on, and you'll find the care you want! You might not like the hospital itself, but how you labor and give birth is directly influenced on your prenatal care providers! If you don't like her, keep loooking!

...the obstetric community has been overly zealous in ‘treating’ a

normal physiological process and has been triggering many of the

medical crises that lead to cesarean surgery. Greater adherence to

evidence-based medicine would drop the national cesarean rate

dramatically. Obstetricians and hospitals have found that

high-intervention birth, warranted or not, is very profitable. So there

is a tremendous financial incentive to bypass the clinically optimal

approach, and opt for convenience and profit. For example, many

hospitals across the country have eliminated facility-based midwifery

practices simply because the low-intervention approach, while

clinically sound, does not bring in as many dollars.

- Tonya Jamois, president of ICAN

$13 to $20 billion a year could be saved in health care costs by
demedicalizing childbirth, developing midwifery, and encouraging
breastfeeding.

Department of Pediatrics, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore,
