3 years ago I was pregnant with my first and diagnosed with hellp at 39/5 pregnant. I was induced, in labor for 36 hours and pushed for 2 hours. My son was posterior. Had to have a csection because I never went beyond 0 station.
I long for a VBAC more then anything. I don't know what I would do if I had to have a repeat section. I did not heal very well and it took me many months to not feel in pain. I have thought about a VBAC everyday for the last 3 years.
I recently met with a CPM and she said I would be able to VBAC. I would have to go to a specific hospital for a certain doctor on call. This midwife seemed great and I have read positive reviews of her on the internet. However she did mention induction at 41 weeks. And that I would have to go and see the doctor like every other visit so he could check me out since I am high risk, This scares me a little. I feel like I should be treated like only a VBAC, since HELLP does not repeat very often and since I had it so late in my pregnancy it would be less of a concern until the end of a future pregnancy, I want absolutely no interference with my pregnancy as long as HELLP syndrome does not repeat.
Does anyone know of any midwives around that would be able to deliver me interference free as long as I was healthy? I dont want an epi, no pain meds, a hep lock, to walk around in labor, and not be checked EVER for dialation. Do I ask for too much?
I am located in Wooster Oh, but I am will to drive up to 2 hours for my wishes! Cleveland is about an hour from me and Columbus is 1.5 hrs.
thank you for any help! I am totally stressing about this dicision on a midwife! The stakes are just so high!
