OB recommends repeat c/s for breech B?!?!! X-Post VBAC - Page 3

post #41 of 42
wow, that's alot of info and experiences.

I had a similar experience and actually came very close to changing providers at 37 weeks. My insurance would have charged me a huge amount in the change of providers and I was not mentally prepared either. None-the-less, I did consult with an MD who is know for doing vag breech deliveries and twins. So, after we talked, I took the info back to my birth team (midwives and the MD). We agreed for a vag breech extraction.

During the time I was going to massage 2x/week b/c I was stressed, uncomfortable, and hoping B would turn. Well, he did turn, at 39+ weeks. We were totally surprised and I didn't even feel it happen.

After all that drama, I still had a c/section for B b/c of his heart rate pattern. My twins are an hour apart. That is a whole different story and In retrospect I would have "managed" the situation a little different as a midwife. But, hindsight is 20/20. And I am still happy A was a vag birth.

Soooo.... bottom line... don't give up. I highly suggest massage and meditation. Your B may still turn.

Also, I would just point blank ask your MD about his liability insurance clause. That is B.S. It is true that insurance companies many times dictate the way providers practice. But I have never heard of this one.

You haven't heard that one? I'm sure I have. And in fact, my dearly departed OB was telling me about the ridiculous book his malpractice provider sent him telling him how we would be practicing obstetrics.

We're taking the "wait and see" approach, and actually, he brought it up before I had a chance. So I feel better.

The fact of the matter is that the tribe of OBs in this particular town just don't do breech. It's stupid, but I wonder if/when this has been challenged, and by whom? The homebirth midwives also don't do breech or twins - out of their SOP. And again, I'm not sure where that comes from.

So even though I'm trying to not be too overtly aggressive about all of this, the fact that I'm strongly *requesting* a vaginal twin birth, a VBAC, and possibly vaginal breech makes folks uncomfortable. It's not just the OBs... the midwives too, for some reason. Bizarre!
