I will attempt a VBAC at home as well. Also due in Sept. First dd turned double footling breech 4 days before due date.
I am in New Zealand....and I don't really know the climate for VBAC's here-as I just moved here from the States. However, about 40% of the midwives in my area will do a VBAC at home. I know that the MD's prefer to have you in the hospital for a VBAC-but I believe they are supportive. The situation in parts of the U.S. is appalling. It is so sad.
I am grateful for this thread...and getting to know other moms in my situation. I am excited to attempt a home birth, but the backlash from family has been harsh.(I am not surprised) My mom works in a labor and delivery unit in Los Angeles...and think she knows everything about birth, including homebirth
: I am considering just telling her that I will have the midwife deliver me in hospital...which she thinks is safer and guarantees a good outcome. *sigh* She is supportive of a VBAC in the hospital.
So, I am hoping we can find the support here that some of us can't find elsewhere.
I hope everyone is doing well with their pregnancy!
