I live in Parkville, too. We should start a club or something.
I am pregnant with my third child. I had a c-section, and then a VBAC. I really want a homebirth, but went to check out Special Beginnings tonight, since the homebirth scene seems pretty hostile here. Halfway through the talk with the midwife at SB, he said they don't do VBACs at the center. Surely he didn't mean second VBACs, so I raised my hand for clarification... yep... no VBACs at all.
I didn't even consider that a second VBAC wouldn't be permitted at a birth center. I just moved here from TX, and second VBACs were allowed at the center near me. To say I am devastated is an understatement.
I really want a waterbirth in my living room. Failing that, I'd like to have a waterbirth in a low-intervention setting... is that even possible in MD, considering I have had a c-section (and a successful VBAC)?
If anyone wants to see pictures of SB, I did take some of the rooms and birthing tubs/jacuzzis. I can email them to anyone who wants to see without having to drive down there.
I'd love to hear any VBAC info anyone may have. Advice, funny jokes, recommendations... :)
Good luck to all the mamas,
