Just wondering if anyone can clear this up for me from their own experience. I called their office twice but haven't been able to get a hold of anyone. A friend of mine had a c/s due to FTP, and almost died during her c/s due to blood loss and felt weird for a few months after, with her first. She is now 29 weeks pregnant with #2 and has been going with a doctor who *said* he was VBAC friendly but now is insisting she have a repeat c/s "because VBAC is dangerous" (gag) which she doesn't want. My friend has said she WANTS a midwife and WANTS to be out of the hospital but didn't know that insurance ever covered midwives. I assured her insurance does, especially in Texas. She says they have very good insurance, but i dont know with whom. I keep reading conflicting info re: finding a homebirth or birth center care provider who takes insurance AND Vbac clients.Some say they don't exist, but Jackie Griggs name keeps coming back up.
So...can anyone clarify for me? Does she take VBAC patients? Will insurance COVER her taking VBAC patients? Obviously i know it depends on her particular insurance but just wondering if it s even possible.
Or if you know of anyone else who does, i'm interested in names. and it has to be someone who takes insurance. They *cannot* afford to pay out of pocket. They would have to UC, and she doesn't feel comfortable doing that.
