Wow, reading some of these threads is freaking me out! I desperately want a MW attended HBAC, but it is not looking good. I hate to think that I should have to be grateful just to be able to have a VBAC in the hospital. Now, it looks like that is sort of hard to do.
I have many, many feelers out there for a MW since I just found out today that my CNM cannot attend me.
About me: I had two great home births, and then a C/S for my third. She was diagnosed as breech when I was in transition and the midwife didn't feel ok about home birth w/o an ultrasound. There were other issues with the labor, too. It wasn't straightforward -- it started and stopped and my DD was in an unstable lie. Anyhow, we high tailed it to the hospital (under the MW's guidance) for an emergency C/S.
So, now, I am in better health than ever before, and bc of the super weird political climate in my state, there is no MW willing to attend a VBAC mom at home.
My husband doesn't even know yet (still at work), and he is going to be very disappointed.
Please pray that my friend will be able to find some underground lady to help me! I am 33 weeks pregnant.
