I had a successful VBAC 17 months ago and am now 2mo. preg. I had to fight the board of my local hospital to VBAC because I was considered "high risk" solely on the basis that my first was born after a complicated pregnancy and PROM at 32 weeks. Second pregnancy and birth went perfect. This hospital is changed their VBAC policy (although my midwife didn't know any details yet) because of the revised ACOG guidelines and has also started allowing water birth for the first time. She didn't know whether they would have restrictions around VBAC water birth. Does anyone know if there were ever or currently are ACOG guidelines around this? My hospital made me have continuous monitoring for the VBAC, so I'm guessing that could be a reason why they would deny a water birth.
Also wondering whether you can water birth if you have Group B strep, which I had with both my girls? Any ideas on that? Thanks mamas.
