Hi, I just moved to Kirkwood, St. Louis from NYC a month ago. I had a Csection with my firstborn because the OB thought he would be too big and then a VBAC with my second one. Me and my husband would like to get pregnant at the end of this year and I don't want to chance having a Csection (after fighting so hard to have a VBAC with my 2nd one) by choosing the wrong OB.
I was wondering if anyone had experience with a pro VBAC OB/GYN in this area?
(Like really pro VBAC rather then "maybe" and then changing their mind as it gets closer to the date. I experienced this during my 2nd pregnancy and switched from a OB to a midwife at 30 weeks.)
I chose a midwife who was so sympathetic and encouraging with my 2nd born and had my VBAC, which was simply amazing. I have read that midwives just recently got the ok to practice in MO but most OB/GYN's don't work with them because their legalization is relatively new to the state. I was considering a Homebirth with Midwives but if I go with an OB/GYN hospital birth the co pay for my insurance is like 35$ (or some ridiculously low amount) vs $4,000 out of pocket for a HB.
Thanks to anyone with some info!
