I called the OB office, and I was told that the OB I requested won't take me because I have medicaid. So the receptionist made me an appointment with the other doctor, but I won't be seeing him the first appointment. I will be seeing a nurse practitioner who will determine if I am "High Risk." The doctor does not take high risk medicaid patients. So I am likely going to meet someone who will tell me I am too high risk for this doctor because I am a VBAC patient. Nevermid that I already had a VBAC.
I chose the OB I wanted because she was the only one who had been recommended to me by all of the natural birthing mamas in the area. The doula I'm hiring even said, "She's like the one beacon of light we have here." I originally wanted to go to the birthing center, but it is across a state line, and medicaid won't cover it either. I feel like I'm back at square one.
