I live 20 miles west of Saint Louis. I am 16 weeks pregnant with my third child and I am deadset on avoiding another Csection. I had a Csection in 2010 due to complications and the doctors gave me no choice but to have a cesarean with my second child although it was a healthy pregnancy with no complications. I have since then been researching and reading several home birth after cesarean books and am very confident that I can and will do this. I have contacted many if not all midwives in the area and none of them are willing to attend my VBAMC. So, I feel like I have no choice but to do this alone. I don't have a family support system and my husbands family are very black and white with their thinking so they think I'm making a horrible decision. I need tips, advice, encouragement, any useful resources or information/links, names of Midwives who support VBAMC that may be in the area, etc. I want to be full prepared for this. Can I get my child taken away from me for being 'negligent' and going against my obgyn's wishes? She pretty much told me I would die if I didn't have a C section.
