Help! I need to find a Pro VBAC doctor in Springfield, MO

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am expecting our third baby and I have had 2 previous c-secs, both unplanned. I need to find a doctor who is proVBAC. I had a doctors appointment with Dr. Everett Beguin yesterday, but I would like to have a second opinion. I am desperate! Please help if you can, thanks.

I hope you find one, but usually even those that are Pro VBAC won't do one after two c-sections.  I was just talking about this with my sister today.  She has had one c-section and one vbac and is getting ready for her third and she knows that if she has another c-section her midwife won't let her have another vbac.

Dr. Kidder (at Primrose OB/GYN) is who I'm seeing this pregnancy.  I've had one previous c-section and he told me there was absolutely no reason I couldn't have a VBAC.  I obviously haven't made it to the point of seeing if he follows through at delivery time or not, but he seems very very open minded and intelligent.  He's also pretty new in town and is easy to get in to see.  From a different point of view.. I work in surgery and have spent time with him there as well. He is someone who cares and shows alot of compassion for his patients.  I'm very happy with my decision to see him.

 

Good luck!

 

ETA: His office number is 417-882-6900

How did Dr. Kidder work out for you?

I could not have asked for anything more.  I ended up delivering at 27 weeks (by c-section) because of severe pre-e. I was in the hospital for 9 days and he came in every single day.  He didn't just dump me on his partners.  He's a great dr who really cares for his patients.
