Thanks for the congrats!
Yes, Frederick seems to be pretty anti-VBAC, but we'll see. I might go to Shady Grove Adventist in Rockville, heard they still do some VBACs. I'm very low-risk, and already have a sucessful free-standing birthing center, all natural *posterior* VBAC under my belt, so that might help. I do kind of feel like walking in at 10cm & ready to push in Frederick though, just out of spite.
However, that's really not the birth I'm hoping for. Also considering a birthing center in VA.
I really like the idea of homebirth, but we're almost 30 min from the hospital, and it's the evil Frederick one. The idea of a long transport scares me. *sigh* One of the tradeoffs of living in the country, I guess. I'm still trying to sort this all out. So far, I'll fib about my due date by one week because in Frederick, it seems that they schedule a c-sec before you go into labor & thus make sure you don't have an accidental VBAC, the b*stards.
