Another hopeful successful vba2c?

DH and I are TTC baby #4. I had an emergency c/s with DS #1, a repeat c/s with DS #2, and a successful VBA2C with DD. My question is since I have had a previous successful VBAC will I be able to see a local obgyn and deliver locally or will I have to go to another high risk obgyn and deliver at a high risk hospital which is an hour and a half way? I will definitely make the drive if I have to but would prefer not to. It can get expensive driving back and forth especially towards to last trimester when I would have to go every two weeks then every week....

Re: Another hopeful successful vba2c?

I am not a VBAC mom, but congrats, woman! You did it, your body worked . It really will depend on your OB or the OBs around you. They will determine if you are high-risk or not. I worked for a midwifery practice that did hospital births, and they couldn't see mamas who had had successful VBACs in my area, those mamas had to go to OBs.

I'm not a multiple cs mama, but wasn't considered high risk... although our hospital has a full NICU etc so it wasn't much of a concern. I would think not but I just don't know!

Subbing. I'm a VBA2C mama, too.

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

Yea, we just moved to this area 8 months ago so I really don't know how supportive the OBs are around here. Where we moved from they weren't supportive at all which is why I had to travel almost 2 hours to go to a high risk hospital. I really don't want a repeat... It's hard sitting in a car for that long full term but I guess I will find out whenever we get preggers again! Thanks mamas!!

Re: Another hopeful successful vba2c?

If you want to try and find out who may be VBAC friendly you could try a few places. Call around to local doulas and ask what they have heard. Call or attend a LLL meeting, and as it's not usually normal meeting talk (to discuss doctors), afterwards you can ask who has heard what about VBAC-friendly practitioners.
