I am 26 weeks and I have talked with my doc about a VBAC and no luck.  I have just found out that the state also "Banned VBAC in Birthing Centers".  I am devistated.  I have been searching for a safe and natural way to have my second child.  Can anyone give any info?

Homebirth with or without a midwife seems to be the only way to go in this stupid state anymore.  :(

Bring back the old MDC

This is my contact/interview list for that area for VBAC/HBAC (I am the chapter leader of ICAN of Tallahassee, seems like we are one of the closest ICAN groups):

Pensacola Area List of Potential VBAC Care Providers

CAVEAT: This is an interview list only. Please interview these care providers to determine if they will be supportive of you in your plans to have a Vaginal Birth after Cesarean.


Dr. Anne-Marie Whitlock

Sacred Heart Medical Group
27 Mack Bayou Loop; Suite 200
Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

(850) 267-2961



SECONDARY VBACs (all homebirth):

*Please note that primary VBACs with a homebirth midwife require a consultation with an OB that is currently licensed to practice in Florida. If you are interested in a primary VBAC at home I would check with the midwives to see if they have that consultation available. After a woman has a primary VBAC her “risk score” decreases to a 2 and she may be able to have a home birth without the consult if she has no additional risk factors.

Gentle Birth Options
