Feel free to join the ICAN of Midlands yahoo group and ask the other mamas who they are using for their VBAC - we have two who are planning hospital births right now.http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...ec=group&slk=1
As for Lexington Women's Care, I think its important to understand that the CNM's are part of the whole practice, which is run by the OB's. Additionally, most of the CNM's got their education at either USC or MUSC so the care is going to be pretty homogenous.
The entire obstetric community is going to be this way, generally, because that's how its been (think snowball effect). Finding someone who is willing to go out on a limb for patients is going to be difficult.
It seems like the smaller, more rural clinics with older obstetricians who are not subject to so much oversight are a good place to start if you are looking for less monitoring and more autonomy.
This is really a community problem. I wish more women were willing to make a stink about it because its just going to continue to deteriorate over time, taking down lots of families with it
