So, in my new doctor's eyes, having a VBAC already is a huge deal....my old OB, I feel like I almost could have had more restrictions than I had for the first one!
There are OBs who won't do first time VBACs but will do repeats, too. (With hospitals it's usually all or nothing--from their POV it's all the same.)

The advantage for me was that my VBAC was so empowering, I worried less about the scare tactics and pressure from the staff. Hopefully, you can say the same!
I do think, in general, it may be easier to find a doctor to support you in a second VBAC, but it definitely isn't a given.
My OB with my VBAC was not super supportive. She was the "whatever you want to do, but are you sure you don't want to schedule that c/s?" type. After I had DS2 though, in the delivery room she said "you should definitely do this again!" It was a very good VBAC
