Desperately wanting a VBAC in Houston
Have you contacted your local ICAN chapter? They will be the most knowledgeable about providers in your area. I am in Austin and I don't know specific names but I know of a mom near me who was thinking of traveling to Houston to do a VBA3C with a supportive provider so I know they are out there. How many sections have you had?
Hmm, only having had one CS unless you are high risk for other reasons there should be providers willing to take you. Definitely contact ICAN, go to a meeting if you can and they should have up to date info on VBAC friendly providers in your area. Even if you can't go to a meeting they should have an email group or a facebook page where you can get some information. Have you considered a midwife and the home birth/birthing center route? My VBAC was at a birth center and it was amazing.
There are also some active VBAC facebook communities that might have some info for you. Don't give up! Good luck and keep us updated on what you find out.
I've attended one VBAC at Ben Taub, and she enjoyed her care. It's not as cushy as TCH, but they were accommodating to her wishes.
I've heard Magnolia Blossom Birth Center will accept VBAC clients, but it's probably quite a trek for you.
I believe most home birth midwives do as well. Sandra McDonald was my midwife, and I highly recommend her. There are lots of other awesome midwives. Check out the Greater Houston Midwives Alliance website for a listing of midwives in the Houston area.
I live in Katy, but I think it's completely worth it to drive downtown for him. Plus, Memorial Hermann is the best hospital I've ever given birth in. It's great, you know, for a hospital.
