I know I CAN refuse consent for a RCS and what that entails, but just wondering if anyone here has done it and how it went.
I am planning a VBAC in April and it will be *extremely* against the wishes, advice, judgement etc of my OB and the hospital. My OB does VBACs and my hospital doesn't have a ban, but I have many multiple c/s's and they are not willing to even discuss VBAMC.
At this point (25 weeks) I have made it clear I would have a VBAC if I could and won't consent to a RCS before labor begins- as in I won't schedule one). I have not told my OB that I will be refusing a c/s when in labor as I can't risk them refusing my care (I actually really like my OB in every other regard and don't want a hostile prenatal care relationship with her) or chancing them doing anything crazy like CPS etc beforehand.
I have a doula, a very supportive husband and as much knowledge as possible. I have had previous vaginal birth so not concerned about the process itself. I *wish* home birth was an option but in my stupid state NO midwife will attend a HBAC (trust me, I've tried) and as you can see from my signature line traveling to a state for a Dr who will support VBAMC is not an option. I'm kinda busy. ;)
So I guess I just wondered if anyone has done this, how combative and hostile the Dr's/ staff were in labor and how it went. I am nervous about that part of it. Or any more advice on how to prepare and plan.....?
Thanks for reading!
