hbac near philly, or reading birth center

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

I'm considering options for a March 2014 hbac and would love midwife recommendations for the Philly area (we are in the northwest suburbs).  Baby #1 was a birth center transfer ending in cesarean, baby #2 was a hospital vbac.  I would consider the hospital again, but I'd really prefer an out of hospital option.  I left a VM for Kate at Rising Moon Midwifery, but so far she's the only one I've contacted.  

 

I'm also thinking about possibly looking at the Reading Birth Center--I've heard they do vbacs out of the hospital.  But it's an hour away, and for my last two labors, once I was in active labor, I barely had time to travel before I was in transition...not particularly pleasant, but perhaps an overall better option than the hospital?

 

Anyway, any feedback about local CPMs would be much appreciated!  I know CNMs can't do hbacs (I spoke with Kathy Hindle, who sounds absolutely AMAZING, but she said it's a license issue--BOO).

 

Thanks!!

Karen Webster is out of Elkton, but she and her partner cover the Philly area, I think.
