I'm all for Vbac's and natural childbirth. I do think women should be allowed to have the birth they want when the circumstances allow for that. I just have to say that this may not be one of those cases. I do agree that there are often unnecessary inductions and c-sections and there are many times doctors are to blame. I certainly know and am aware of the fact that it's a whole lot easier for them to schedule for convenience and it end up being a bad birth experience. I also understand that is something you really want to avoid, especially considering you were really hoping for a VBAC.
That being said, the most important outcome is a healthy baby and mother. It could very well end up that none of this is necessary, and I really, really hope that is the outcome for you. I really do. But if that's not the case... then you'd better believe I'd be fully ready and willing to take the induction and possibility of a c-section if it means my baby would have the best doctor available to care for him/her at the birth. As a previous poster said, with an induction there may not be a guarantee that you'd deliver while that surgeon was on rotation, but I would think the surgeon would be a lot more able and willing to be on-call or around for the procedure if s/he has a window of time that it will happen in. I.E. You're being induced on this day, so within that 24 hour period, there will likely be a baby. 24 hours is a lot easier to schedule around than a window of a couple of weeks.
I know you don't feel like you should have to schedule your baby's birth to fit someone else's schedule, but if you need that particular surgeon then yes I do think you should be willing to bend a little to fit his/her needs as well. I wouldn't expect a whole staff to make special arrangements just on my behalf because I want a particular kind of birth experience. I think you should remain hopeful, but prepare yourself for what might not be your ideal birth experience. Again, the most important detail of this birth is to have a healthy baby at the end of it.
