They do not do vbacs at the abc. They do in the regular l&d. We recently attempted our first birth at the abc. We were transferred due to baby's heart-rate being non-responsive (no fluctuations) after 24 hours of prodromal labor. we didn't hire a doula because we thought we were going to be in the abc, and consequently felt pretty alone in the l&d.The nurses there were nice, but didn't have much to offer since they knew I didn't want drugs. The nurses at the abc were great, though. Our abc nurse even kept coming over to check on us, even though we weren't in the abc anymore.
After more non-progression and heart rate issues, a fever on my part, etc, I had a cs. Nurses from the abc came and visited the next couple days, checking in and expressing sympathy for our situation. I'm very sad that I will not be able to deliver at the abc because of being a vbac. I truly felt like it was the perfect place for me. I would still recommend it. I hear all good things about people who birth there. I would recommend a doula, as well, since you never know how birth will go and it was something we regretted once we got transferred.
