Long story short, I had a very high risk pregnancy with my first son and it was very necessary to have a c-section for my first son. Until I found out I was high risk, I was planning a home birth. Since then I moved from vbac friendly portland, OR to santa barbara, CA, where vbacs are banned everywhere within 200 miles... I really dont want to have another c-section, especially if its not medically necessary. Not only because I cant stand another impersonal cold c-section, but I will have 1 year old son and an infant to care for, leaving NO time for recovery from a major surgery.
I did find a home birth midwife who is willing to try a home vbac. I am a little nervous, as I may lose the support of my back up MD and have no idea how Ill be treated IF I have to transfer or what exactly the risks may be of having a vaginal birth at home, and only 1 year after I had my first c-section.
Anyone have any experience here?
