HELP in Northwest Ohio...need a real midwife or OB thats VBAC & waterbirth friendly!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I am hoping someone out here can help because I am running into dead-ends everywhere I turn! I live in Northwest Ohio...close to both lucas and fulton county lines. Anyway I am searching desperately for either an OB (laughable I know) or a midwife that is ok with a VBAC waterbirth. It seems to be taboo around here because everyone requires continuous monitoring with a VBAC so that in and of itself kind of throws out laboring or birthing in water. I have been told by my current group that I am an excellent VBAC candidate (2 vaginal and 1 c-section due to a breech position and OB refused a "version"). I was told by St Lukes family birthing center that they allow both VBAC and water BUT i need to find the practitioner. There lies the problem! Has anyone had this experience before? I am slightly open to a homebirth as well...or even traveling a little. If anyone has ANY suggestions they are greatly appreciated!

What are you considering "a real midwife"?

Basically someone who isn't too medicine/ intervention "happy". I really need someone understanding that I do not want constant monitoring, induction, or anything else that isn't needed. The practice I go to now is too doctor oriented and I am really having trouble finding someone sensitive to my family's needs. I hope that made sense and answered the question!
