Re: Denied Prenatal Care?

I was shocked to hear him say that I have only a 10% chance of ANY VBAC, let alone HBAC, and they won't even see me because I could put their practice at risk!
First off - bullsh!t on his 10% chance of a successful VBAC. I get so disgusted when I read about many OBs opinions on VBACs. Just ridiculous.

Secondly - personally, I would talk with your MW about what this OB said and see what other suggestions she has. Hopefully she'll have someone else in mind who could provide the tests or whatnot you want that would still be covered by insurance.

Good luck!
