I am shocked at all the offices I have called and they don't like to do VBACS!  Why is that?  I have had 2 vbacs already you would think that makes me a good canidate but no:(

It's not a great climate for VBACs in general in the US.  With 2 or 3 really proven providers, we actually have it better than many areas, sadly.

 

The ICAN of Atlanta forum has more discussion on VBAC providers here than anywhere else - tons of reviews of the different vbac friendly and not-so-friendly providers.

Have you called Intown midwifery (Margaret Strickhouser's Practice)?

 

I know for a fact they do VBAC all the time. In fact my friend is seeing her for her 3rd VBAC, 6th pregnancy. Two successful VBACs already with Margaret, one at North Fulton and one at Atlanta Medical Center (current place Margaret is catching babies).

 

If you prefer an OB, I have heard good things about Doctor Tate, and Doctor Schilling (my sis sees Schilling as her home birth backup OB).

Where in Atlanta are you? I know a few ob/gyns who do VBACs in addition to the midwives listed above.

I would really recomend Dr. Joseph Tate in Norcross. I went to him when I was 36 weeks because my current OB started pulling the big baby card and didn't want me to go past 41wks. He was awesome, after 30 hours of labor and not being pressured into another cesarean I pushed out my 9lb 3oz VBAC baby girl :)

This is my first VBAC and although the "proof is in the pudding" I feel very supported with Janet Fedullo at Alpharetta Women's Specialists.  So far she has all the right answer and make me feel like there is no reason in the world I couldn't have the birth I want.
