Yeah, so just in case anyone else finds this thread because THEY are looking for someone... just give up now and spare yourself the frustration.
I know personally two OBs in Des Moines who are SKILLED at breech. But they won't do it. Damn them. I mean, to force someone to have a C/S, not because you don't have the skills to deliver vaginally, but because you just simply will not...I don't even have words to describe the frustration and anger.
But for the record... I haven't called every lay midwife in the state, but I've called around a bit and nobody knows anyone with enough breech experience to knowingly take one on, particularly in our climate here right now.
U of I midwifes, who have been great with our VBAC women from DSM who can't find care here, won't do breech. Their supporting OBs won't either.
There's a chance Dr Mintzer here in DM will take me, I'm waiting to hear back from him, but the first time we spoke about it, he said he would not do a planned breech vaginally.
There WAS an OB in Knoxville who had breech experience and was at least open to vaginal breech, but he retired.
