If you are near Winter Haven, the doc who gave my clearance for the homebirth is Dr. Gatto. He does alot of VBAC's. His office is across the street from the hospital and he has fetal monitors in his office so that while the VBAC moms are laboring the fetal monitors can be observed because he can't be in the hospital for the whole labor like the ACOG outlines. He told me that he hasn't had a bad VBAC outcome in 20 years.
That's one of the reasons it is so hard to get a hospital VBAC in FL. In the city I live in their are now only 5 private obstericians and most have dropped their malpractice insurance because it is too expensive. Any "high-risk" mom gets transferred to a state protected OB.
My OB told me I could try for a VBAC. Then I found out he wouldn't let me go past 38 weeks. That would have meant induction, which increases the risk of rupture.
I transferred care to the LM at 5 months. DS was born at 42 weeks.
Best Wishes to everyone!
