Since the pregnancy invloves twins, the hospital that offers vbacs 100 miles from here won't touch it either, since it is a "high risk" pregnancy...
So, I guess if I wanted a vbac in a hospital, I would have to consider going to my mom's 7 hours away (staying there for the 3-4 weeks before the expected due date) which would mean being away from my dh and caring for my then 18mo dd pretty much by myself in a foreign environment while I am basically supposed to be just resting and incubating these babies... no-- I don't think that will work.
Homebirth: As mentioned earlier, my dh absolutely does not want to have a homebirth. I don't even know if any of the area midwives will touch a twin vbac; I haven't gotten around to investigating that yet.
I AM, however, considering using the "tactics" explained in the ican papers (link provided from a pp, this thread), playing along with repeat c/s, then NOT consenting to the procedure within 30 days of due date
. I believe that may cause a hostile atmosphere at the hospital
, and I would want to retain a lawyer, but I think it may just well be worth proving the point!
I could foresee it becoming a controversial topic in the community and making it onto the nightly news around here! But it would bring awareness to the area
... I would have to keep this scheme to myself, not even let my dh in on it until the time comes, as he does not deal well with confrontation.
Has anyone here ever tried this? I will have to check out other posts on the forum to see if anyone has actually done this... (or, please, point me there!)
